Cisco 892FSP - SPAN Ports behavoir

Dear Cisco-Community,

I try to mirror one uplink port (Gi8) of my Cisco892 to a switchport (Gi2). Is it a bug or a feature that I cannot mirror uplinks(Gi8-9), but switchports(Gi0-7) do work?

Uplink not working:

C892-(config)#monitor session 1 source interface gigabitEthernet ?
<0-9> GigabitEthernet interface number

C892-(config)#monitor session 1 source interface gigabitEthernet 8 
% Incomplete command.

C892-(config)#monitor session 1 source interface gigabitEthernet 8 ?
% Unrecognized command

Switchport works

C892-(config)#monitor session 1 source interface gigabitEthernet 7
C892-(config)#

I don't know the answer - but typically you can only monitor switch ports, not routed layer 3 ports.

Thank you. So, I will switch from WAN uplink to access ports (with SVI) for my WAN connection.
