In general, people tend to allocate twice the memory size for swap, or
in your case, 2GB.
-However-, swap should not be treated as "memory" - it should be treated
as "Backup memory repository that should save my server if there's a
-short- server load surge".
If you're  frequently hitting the swap and/or the swap usage >= memory
size, you should seriously consider adding more memory.
