In local.conf, some devstackers add VERBOSE=True, can you help with explaining the role of this command. Thank you!

Setting verbose to True in the configuration will result in the service generating more output (will show you both WARNING and INFO log levels), normally you will only see WARNING or higher (ERROR for example). You can also set the debug to True if you want even more information you will the recieve logs with the DEBUG loglevel this includes debug information from functions being called etc in the code and is only recommended for deep troubleshooting or developers.

I recommend you always have verbose set to True, that what we have. We also manage and parse our logs with Logstash, ElasticSearch and then Kibana as a dashboard it's very handy.

Best regards
