I will, thanks!

We're 3/2 replication, no ec. It's a three-node (small) cluster, 8 
filestore OSDs per node, with an SSD journal (wear evel 75%)

We will be using samsung PM833 bluestore of the same size
(4TB spinners to 3.83GB PM833 SSDs)

> Are you planning to remove all disks per server at once or disk by disk?
I was planning to:
- first add two SSDs to each server, and gradually increase their weight
- then, disk-by-disk, replace the 8 (old) spinners with the 6 remaining SSDs

> Will all new drives equal or increase the disk capacity of the cluster?
Approx equal yes.
The aim in not to increase space.
