The exact amounts depend entirely on the size of the applications and on what they do, so the only real way to tell is to measure.

It's true that the 128M default for PermGen space is borderline, making 256MB more suitable for a lot of apps, but the heap size requirements could be almost anything.

Customer surveys are for companies who didn't pay proper attention to begin with.
I agree. Here's the link:
