Request-for-comments: Evaluation broker control API

The Nomad engineering team would love to get some community feedback on a proposed set of features!

During incident response for Nomad or for Nomad workloads, operators may find that the scheduler can compound the ongoing incident by pushing forward with evaluations as best it can. We’ve recently been working on a bunch of improvements for incident response, but we think operators may also want to have some sort of top-level “maintenance mode” where evaluation processing is paused or otherwise controlled while a problem is being debugged.

Take a look at Evaluation broker control API · Issue #11638 · hashicorp/nomad · GitHub and let us know what you think! Thanks!
