    Thanks, I think this is a really nice change!
    Given that we are approaching feature freeze for 1.5 and already have a 
very big backlog, I would try and get to this for the 1.6 release. Hope that 
works for you.

> Configure Memory Sizes with units
> ---------------------------------
>                 Key: FLINK-6469
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLINK-6469
>             Project: Flink
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: Core
>            Reporter: Stephan Ewen
>            Assignee: vinoyang
>            Priority: Major
> Currently, memory sizes are configured by pure numbers, the interpretation is 
> different from configuration parameter to parameter.
> For example, heap sizes are configured in megabytes, network buffer memory is 
> configured in bytes, alignment thresholds are configured in bytes.
> I propose to configure all memory parameters the same way, with units similar 
> to time. The JVM itself configured heap size similarly: {{Xmx5g}} or 
> {{Xmx2000m}}.
> {code}
> 10000  -> bytes
> 10 kb
> 64 mb
> 1 gb
> ...
> {code}
