Hello community, this is my first post so I'd like to say hello.

I need a hint. I have a cluster of 4 nodes, each node has 4 nvme 1.6TB disks and 4 SAS-SSD 1.6TB disk, how should the pool be created?
Should all drives work together? How will this affect performance nvme drives are faster than SSD, is cepch able to distinguish it.
Or should it be set up differently?

sorry for my poor english, it's not my primary language.
