Each metric should have a unit where it measurements are expressed (for example MB, %, instance, B/s, ns, etc). The unit should be included in metric show method.

i took a look at a few other tsdb, some support unit through tags (kairosdb, influxdb), others have it as native field (kdb+). speaking with jd, i'm inclined to say just make it a native field since it's easier. also, cadf expects unit always be present for metrics so it works on enterprise level.
