I do a VACUUM FULL VERBOSE ANALYZE each day. I save all logs so I can
check if vacuum is done properly.(it is)

I checked that there is no warnings about FSM in logs. (also in logs
from vacuum). Is it reliable?

What do u mean for "cut all of 8.1's autovac parameters in half" Maybe
default autovac parameters?

I ll keep an eye on it.

Reindex is  done everyday after VACUUM FULL VERBOSE ANALYZE. I save also
the output averyday and save it into a log, and I can check that it is
done properly.
