Description

From the SYNOPSIS of flowadm man page -

flowadm show-flow [-pP] [-S] [-s [-i interval]] [-l link] [-o field[,...]] [flow]

From the explanation of show-flow sub-command -

         -s, --statistics

             Displays flow statistics.

         -i interval, --interval=interval

             Used with the -s option to specify an  interval,  in
             seconds, at which statistics should be displayed. If
             this  option  is  not  specified,   statistics   are
             displayed once.

Observed behaviour -

shruti@justforkix:~$ flowadm show-flow -s -i 1 testflow
flowadm: unrecognized option '-s'
shruti@justforkix:~$ flowadm show-flow -s testflow
flowadm: unrecognized option '-s'

Similar to #7210, these usage stats were moved to flowstat, so should be removed from the man page here.
