Default Budgeting for a fleet

There are a number of sources which attempt to give a method for calculating a world military budget, but that budget itself must inevitably be split between achieving multiple military objectives.

It is usually assumed that a world naval budget can happily be spent on shops for direct use in the line of battle, but this does not take into account patrols, fixed installations and such.

How many patrol ships would a world need to budget for? What about jump capable patrol ships for an interstellar polity?

Other considerations?

I know this will vary based on a number of factors, but can we arrive at an assumed average? In modern militaries, what is the ratio of patrol and escort craft to cruisers and battleships?
