Hi, David:

I am speaking as a CloudStack user/admin/operator here.

Here is an issue which really really drives me crazy, but should be relatively easy for a
java developer to work on:  improving error log messages!

Here is a specific example: when deploying a VM instance fails, often the error message simply
says “InsufficientServerCapacityException: Unable to create a deployment”  along with
a stack trace, but without any easily understandable information.  I have encountered this
error for at least a dozen different reasons.  This message really can be improved to provide
more context and human understandable output to help CloudStack admins to troubleshoot the
real problem.

Good luck.

Yiping
