[slurm-users] Add new compute node without interruption

Normally, adding a new node requires altering slurm.conf, and restarting slurmctld, and slurmd on each node.
Restarting these daemons should  not harm jobs and can be done while existing jobs are running.

Firstly thanks slurm devloper for your amazing works.

We would like to know if it is planned to add this feature:
Adding new compute node without interruption

Indeed actually we have to stop compution, declare new nodes and resume the computation. such feature would be really helpfull with the growth of cloud computation.


Best regards
