Can i know when the log space uses 100% of the quota, will delete the old log to recycle to space, or do PAN just delete portion of the log? if it only delete a certain percentage of the log , how many percent of it will be removed? or it delete the portion of log based on time?

By default at about 80% the palo alto will start purging the disk.

You can try running command 'show system logdb-quota' to determine amount of data being purged.

This is not very clear on Palo box, since months we have issue that every
week we have alarm indicating that the log was exceeded 80 of the quota, in
fact we want to log all traffics and don’t want to disable logging on some
rules, I monitored during the week the logdb-quota and Palo don’t clear/purge
or delete older log at 80%, we opened a case on Palo support from three weeks
and the only response we get is that we have to disable some logging on our
So will be grate that Palo clarify this issue and response the question
Thanks for your answer and help

Please see below and see if that helps answer your questions.
If you are looking for partially deleting the logs the work around would be If you resize the partition, and commit and then size it back after the commit, you should essentially remove the last the oldest logs. For example if you have 1 GB of traffic logs, resize the partition to 500MB, and commit, you will remove the oldest 500MB of logs.
5. Also if you would like to request a feature to delete logs partially please contact your local SE (Sales Engineer) and he should be able to file an enhancement request for you.
Hope this helps.
