Today i have found some problem with network traffic logs in PAN OS 5.0.3. i am not getting proper logs of network traffic any suggestion!!!!
Are you unable to see logs under Monitor > traffic....?
You may check with below mentioned CLI command, to confirm that the PAN firewall is generating traffic logs:

Lets say if you are browsing, then you are supposed to close the page in browser. So session is terminated and firewall generates log.
If not, it waits till session timeout and then generates log.
As Hardik said, you need to close the browser or connection to generate traffic logs ( assuming that, you have only enabled "log at session end" on security policy). Otherwise, it will keep the session active till default session timeout value.
Default timeout values are given below:
TCP default timeout: 3600 secs
TCP session timeout before SYN-ACK received: 5 secs
TCP session timeout before 3-way handshaking: 10 secs
TCP session timeout after FIN/RST: 30 secs
UDP default timeout: 30 secs
ICMP default timeout: 6 secs
other IP default timeout: 30 secs
Captive Portal session timeout: 30 secs
Session timeout in discard state:
TCP: 90 secs, UDP: 60 secs, other IP protocols: 60 secs
Hope this helps.
