Hi,

The command to configure the VLAN monitor for a port is "configure ports monitor vlan ".
thank you for your reply, i want ask you many questions if you never mind,

1. If I run this ports Vlan statistics , i will not access to a switch that means a switch will not go to down or off line ? because i will do that by telnet?
2. What is the benefit if I' running this command on Switch?
3. this task it will effect on the traffic?

The command that Arun provided just enables the VLAN statistics. Once it's enabled then you can run your command "#show ports vlan statistics" and you will see the vlan statistics. It's not enabled by default. This command is non intrusive.

thank dear, that is mean there isn't any risky over the traffic or remote accesses to a switch?

"unconfigure ports monitor vlan "

Most commands that begin with "configure" can be undone with "unconfigure".
