MySQL Variable size usage in shell prompt


When we are trying to restore the dump file, we got an error like  "Got a packet bigger than max_allowed_packet". Then we increased max_allowed_packet variable size and passed along with MySQL restore command.

mysql -max_allowed_packet=128M -u<username> -p < /path/file.sql

After increasing the variable size also we got same error. Later we converted the value from 128M to 134217728 Bytes, then restore done successfully.

In case my.cnf, when we pass the value for MySQL variables its accepting either in bytes, K, M or G.

Why it doesn't consider128M in MySQL prompt while restoring the dump file?
