How to determine correct buffer size?  RSS feed

I've been adjusting the response buffer with setBufferSize(), but I'm wondering if someone can let me know what a good size is? Is it an art form or is there a science to it, or somewhere in between?

My scenario is as follows:

Due to certain legacy code and other issues in this servlet, I must output thousands of lines JavaScript. That means lots of . In fact, the final output approaches 1 meg in some cases. This is mostly an intranet application, so download/upload speeds should be fairly decent. However, some people will be accessing it from an external broadband connection.

Is setBufferSize(100000) too high? What kinds of things do I need to consider here?

I've never done anything but leave the buffer size at its default setting.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
