Hi @Schneur_Feldman ,


That is a great question.  PANW has many documents with regards to best practices for dynamic updates, one of which is mentioned by @PavelK.  I have seen the update intervals change over the years, getting smaller as PANW increases their frequency of providing updates.


For my NGFWs, I always load the Day 1 Configuration 1st.  It includes the current best practice update schedule for each update.  It also includes many other best practices.  Afterwards, in order to keep up with best practice changes, I run a BPA on Panorama or a selected NGFW.


This is the best way I have found to stay updated to best practice recommendations.
