at some point, more shared buffers will do less good than leaving the
memory to the OS to use as disk buffers. you might want to experiment
a bit with different values to find what suits your real-life conditions

as Iain wrote, this value is an indication of how much memory will be
available to the OS for disk cache.
when all other settings have been made, try to see how much memory your
OS has left under normal conditions, and adjust your setting
accordingly, if it differs significantly.
I have seen cases where an incorrect value (too low) influenced the
planner to use sequential scans instead of better indexscans,
presumably because of a higher ratio of estimated cache hits.
