Another question popped into my mind, directly connected to the previous one.
I figure out that no extra space is needed in a FlexVol volume to store LUNs if I don't use snapshots (sum of the LUNs + 1 GB only).
Now, if I want to use deduplication on this volume, do you know a way to compute the space reserve I should keep ?

Allow me to ask what makes you think you need to reserve space for deduplication? Its meant to save you space, not cost you space :-)
There is a Techincal report for deduplication that you ll have to read before implementing it. I suggest you go look for it on now.netapp.com
and make sure its the right thing for your environment.
