Monitor commands are used with packet sniffing programs like Wireshark

You will plug your computer to the output port

I tried to reproduce what you have and got the same thing.

My guess at this point is the IOS version. I'll dig a little deeper. Meanwhile, check this link here

I initially thought the configuration was on an ASA
The wireshark reference applies to low end devices that don't support Embedded Packet Capture.

The capture needs to be created first and based on the command syntax, "1" is supposed to be the capture name. In the IOS version used, name is not an option after "monitor capture...". The only available options are buffer and point.
