Thanks to nanog community, i had positive feedbacks.

This is hardware limitation with 10GE cisco Card on GSR.
Since it look to be an ASIC issue, i do not expect to be fixed by
software !!

There is a workaround to get byte counter, but we have to disable packet
counter.

This is what we did and it works fine.

Bottom line : 
	Mind VLAN monitoring issues when using 10GE GSR LC.

Vincent.
