Increased Configuration Size for Panorama

Increased configuration file size to optimize performance for M-Series and Panorama™ virtual appliances.
The total configuration file size of Panorama™ M-Series and virtual appliances is an important piece of the performance metric when determining which M-Series appliance or the minimum amount of virtual resources you need to allocate on your Panorama virtual appliance to ensure that you meet your Security requirements. PAN-OS 10.0 increases the total configuration file size of the Panorama management server in Management Only mode to better optimize your appliance and to support larger configuration file sizes. Increasing the total configuration file size of the Panorama management server helps reduce the performance impact on the Panorama management server when performing configuration changes, commits, and pushes to managed firewalls.
The increased configuration file size for Panorama is supported only in Management Only mode.
The Panorama M-Series and virtual appliances in Panorama mode and the M-100 appliance do not support this increased configuration file size.
Refer to the table below for the recommended maximum configuration file size based on your Panorama M-Series appliance or the resources you allocate to your Panorama virtual appliance.
