If your pool size is 1, and you have 2 disks with 2GB and 8GB, then
you write 1GB file,
so the 2GB disk will use 200MB and 8GB disk will use 800MB, crush
think the bigger osd will
distribute more data than small osd that controlled by crush weight;
So the best practice is deploy same capacity and performance disk in
one pool, and if you
have more than one hosts, you best have same osds in each host.
