As much as possible.  It depends on your ruleset, and more important,
what preprocessors (if any) you use.  Also mote that the new 2.x use
more than 1.9.x.  Yoou could probably get an 1.9.x running with 32MB
over a slow link, but it would be a tight fit.  On the other side, a 2.x
running on a GigE link without too much tuning would benefit from a GB
or two.

This has, however, benn discussed several times in the past.  For more
details, you should search the mailing-list archives[0].

[0] Checking the documentation, searching the list-archives and google
    is basic homerwork that should *allways* be done before posting to
    the list.
