I never see free space increase whenever volumes are deleted. Is there a license required in order for 3par to do this or how do i reclaim free space?

Where are you not seeing space freed and what type of volumes are you deleting?

When you delete a FPVV or TPVV, the space is released to the CPG. If you are looking at the global "free space" numbers, you need to do a Compact CPG on the CPG in which the FPVV/TPVV used to be, to release that space to the global pool.

was looking at the dashboard for total capicty. Was under the impression it would compact the CPG automatically. Is this something that should be done after hours? How long should it take to run on say 5TB?

It depends on CPG size, disk type and how many you got. 5TB should be quick. A few hours should do it in most cases. Compact is a low priority background task.
