spanning port and monitoring

I have spanned port that is set to capture only received traffic. But monitoring shows IN and OUT bandwidht etc.

is this to be expected? This is config i have for spanned port

monitor session 1 source interface Gi2/0/24 rx
monitor session 1 destination interface Gi2/0/7

show monitor session 1
Session 1
Type                   : Local Session
Source Ports           :
    RX Only            : Gi2/0/24
Destination Ports      : Gi2/0/7
    Encapsulation      : Native
          Ingress      : Disabled

not quite sure if i understand your question correctly but the show command will always show the port being monitored and where the captured traffic is being sent to (destination).
