 what would be a good value for


 on a Dual-CPU EM64T System with 8 GB of memory. Kernel is
2.6.9-42.0.3.ELsmp. I know that the default might be a bit low.
Unfortunatelly the documentation is a bit weak in this area.

 We are experiencing responsiveness problems (and higher than expected
load) when the system is under combined memory+network+disk-IO stress.

Please CC me on replies, as I am only getting the digest.
