Rule of thumb(On linux): on a typically loaded machine, observe cache memory of 
the machine and allocate good chunk of it as effective cache.

To define good chunck of it, you need to consider how many other things are 
running on that machine. If it is file server + web server + database server, 
you have to allocate the resources depending upon requirement.

But remember It does not guarantee that it will be a good value. It is just a 
starting point..:-) You have to tune it further if required.
