msrinath80 is on a distinguished road
For my approx 1.2 million cells (single-phase) icoFoam vortex shedding case, here is the output after the first three time steps and the corresponding fvSolution pressure solver entries:

ICCG: (p ICCG 1e-06 0;)

Clearly, the AMG solver is better than ICCG for this case. Are there any guidelines on what number to use at the coarsest level for the AMG solver?

hjasak will become famous soon enough
On the top level of AMG you have a system of equations that needs to be solved to a tight tolerance and the question is how much work to leave for the top level. In serial runs, anything between a dozen and a couple of hundred cells will give you the same result (1000 is too much). In parallel, it is the communications that matter, which means you need to be more careful: make sure there's a sufficient number of cells for each CPU. You also need to worry about the case where you have multiple separate domains. In general, 20-30 cells per CPU in parallel will do you fine (until I do some more tricks to speed this up). :-)
