    Start off with how much you think it should be and monitor it from there. Monitor your buffer cache hit ratio http://otn.oracle.com/docs/products/...9_mem.htm#1720 . You should aim for a hit ratio of about 95% or better.

    For a small OLTP database (50 concurrent users or so, 100G data), I like to start off with 128M of buffer cache. For apps with a large number of users, I start with 256M and go up from there.
