I have a nice rule for both physical and virtual ram:

The physical ram should be cleared within 1-3 seconds.
The swap should be read/written in 10-60 seconds.

For my Alpha that would be 256-512 MB ram and 128-1024 GB swap.

If you need more ram, you should think about a faster maschine or
faster drives.

May the Source be with you.
