Most of the issues deal with inconsistent settings between PVS servers. In the script I wrote to check the health of a PVS farm, I look for the following between all servers:

Compare the Advanced Server Items settings
Compare the Configuration Wizard settings
Bootstrap settings
DisableTaskOffload setting
PVS services
PVS services failure actions
Which vDisks are candidates for merging
Empty device collections
vDisks not associated with any target device
Bad Streaming IP addresses
Misc registry items (I check 13 registry keys)
vDisks configured for Server-side caching
