Exactly this. In our environment, we're using GCE preemptible nodes and the Jenkins GCE plugin. As a consequence of this, it's highly likely (even expected) that a node will go away during the course of a build. The problem is, the Jenkins GCE plugin just marks that node as "offline", but a parallel job "part" that was assigned an executor on that node will just keep churning away there, seemingly forever, apparently in the hope that the node will come back.

The question I have, then, is simple:

Is it possible to force Jenkins to reschedule (NOT fail) a parallel build "part" as soon as the node it's executing on goes offline? If so, how is this done?
