Requirement of JVM recycle after a product installation
1. May I please know under what circumstances are we supposed to recycle the JVM servers after an install?
2. What are the rules which actually demand for a server recycle after the installation in production environment?

This may depend on your version of the software and exactly what is in your product file.
Normally my expectation is that most rule changes will be picked up automatically. Furthermore, this should coordinate those rule updates across the other application servers that are connected to your database instance.
But, just to qualify, I'm most frequently working with Pega 7 product versions.
If your product file includes jar files (classes) and an earlier version of that class is already loaded on the system, then I believe you may need to restart the application server to get it to load the new version of the class.
