There are no real ``suggested normal values''.

I run my boxes with it at `131072'--I don't know that 10k files handles will
get you that far.
Again it entirely depends on your setup and what your vservers are running;
I've just looked and I'm capping the file handles at ~1000/vserver and they
appear to be using 500-800 on average (total divided by running vservers).
