Hey guys, is there something I need to enable on a 2800 or 1800 cisco router to be able to get the
"traffic" command to work to show the Input and output of a router interface?

    What command is it exactly you are trying to use?

    I was only watching this yesterday....

    You're thinking of the "traffic" command Jeremy C used in his CBT Nuggets QoS series. There is no real "traffic" command, but its something he created as alias for.

    Enable traffic stats for an interface:
    int Dialer0 or <interface of your choice>
     ip nbar protocol-discovery

    Create the alias:
    alias exec traffic show ip nbar protocol-discovery stats bit-rate top-n 10

    Issue the "traffic" command from the exec prompt.
     Last clearing of "show ip nbar protocol-discovery" counters 5w3d
                                Input                    Output
