Thank you for sharing. This matches my observations when I checked if slurm
could do what I am upto: manage AWS EC2 dynamic(spot) instances.
After replacing MySQL with REDIS now i wonder what would it take to make
slurm node addition | removal dynamic. I've been looking at the source code
for many months now and trying to decide if it can be done.
I am using configless, 3 controllers, 2 slurmdbs with a redis sentinel
based robust backend.
