The unit is not a valid one. Since graphite is pretty strict when it comes to
numbers and units icinga2 has to reformat some numbers. It is only able to do
it if the units in the perfdatastring follows the monitoring plugins
development guidelines [1]. Perfdatastrings that don't follow these rules
will get ignored. 

The plugin needs to get fixed, icinga2 is right about it.

Hope that helps
