Adjusting the Byte Count Used to Calculate Traffic Rates

You can configure a per-packet byte adjustment that the system uses to calculate the ingress traffic rate, traffic utilization, and traffic statistics. You configure either the number of bytes you want subtracted from each packet ingressing the specified ports or the number of bytes you want added to the packet ingressing the specified ports.

By default, all bytes are counted for the ingressing traffic rate. After you issue this command, the default number of bytes removed is 0; you can add or subtract from one to four bytes from each ingressing packet on the specified ports for calculating the ingressing traffic rate.
