That depends what your running on it. Some applications require XGB of swap, so you'd add them together and then add a bit more.
32Gb of swap seems excessive to me, but like I said it depends what your running on the box.
Weve got some 4 cpu boxes with 16Gb RAM running around 10-20 oracle instances each and they've only got 4 GB of swap on them, and they run fine.

Its a horses for courses thing really...
