How much RAM needed for 50 player server?

Good morning! I would like to host a 50 player server someday when Paper for 1.17 comes out. I want to ask; How much RAM should i allocate to the server? Specs are below-

AMD Ryzen 3 3200U with Radeon Vega 3 Graphics
32 GB RAM

Many thanks!

Depending on what you’re doing, RAM needs can vary widely. Good advice is to allocate more than you could need, say, 12GB or so, and then run the server under expected load. Then you can find out how much is actually in use, and shrink the GBs to just over what you know you need. That way, you have allocated just as much as you’ll need for your situation and avoid wasting any unused RAM.
