The recommendations are:

  • Policy: 100% across all technologies – 100%, 100%, 100% for a self managing black box solution.
  • Operation mode: automatic
  • Workload analysis period: 7 days 168 hours or 4 weeks.
  • Initial analysis period: at least 24 hours, best practice is the default of 168 hours.
  • Performance time windows: 24 hours.
  • Pool reserved capacity: Based on the lowest allocation warning level for that thin pool. For pools with bound devices 10-15% and pools with no bound thin devices set PRC to 1%.

There is an excellent document on PowerLink that gives all the details of FAST VP.  It is over 100 pages of good information.  I tried searching for it, but I didn't find it.  It has been mentioned here in the forums before.
