I've been using 20ms for most of my setups. That's aimed at reducing autovac to almost no impact at all, but taking a long time. Maybe 10ms?

I've found 20ms to be a pretty good number for run-of-the-mill IO capability, and 10ms to be good for a good RAID setup (RAID10, 8+ drives, BBU).

For a default setting, I think it'd be better to lean towards 20ms.
