Global Protect reboot notification

Is there any way to tell before installing an agent upgrade if the agent is going to want a restart or not?

PAN doesn't publish that fact in the release notes, but it would be caught with proper testing. On the support website, both the agent bundle and the actual agent installation files are offered. Before pushing the agent bundle to the firewall or loading the installing into whatever you utilize to manage the package, install it on a test machine and see if it requires a restart. The firewall performing the upgrade or you installing the agent directly will follow the same upgrade procedure.
