  There really aren't any guidelines on these because it really depends
  on your data and how you use the database.  If you insert/update 99%
  of the time and only delete 1% of the time, the defaults are probably
  perfect for you.  Probably up to a 80% insert/update, 20% delete

  If however you're constantly deleting entries from your database, I
  would suggest slowly raising those values in step with each other 
  over the course a few weeks and see where you're at. It is really
  a matter of trial an error. 

  With my databases, I can afford to do VACUUM FULLs fairly often
  so I typically don't need to increase my fsm values.
