Hi Henning,

This plan will generate a lot of unnecessary data shuffling in the entire
cluster. Each time a node is added or removed from the ring, the claim
algorithm will re-assign partitions to/from all nodes. Please consider
updating the existing nodes in place. For more information see the
documentation[0]. Please let us know if any of the documentation is
unclear, so that we can make it better.
