Hello. I want to audit traffic inside of a vlan so it will tell me when one host communicates to another host and what protocol it used without configuring spans on every port and putting a sniffer there.

I was thinking maybe I could log on a mac access-list but I can't

Switch(config-ext-macl)#permit any any ?

<0-65535> An arbitrary EtherType in decimal, hex, or octal

I could configure a vlan access-map with a ACL that logged but I can't

Switch(config-access-map)#match ip add 104

% Logging ACLs are not supported.

Is there anyway to do this?

I couldn't possibly imagine a way to do that.

The device does build tables of what mac addresses are out what interfaces, but that is about it... tracking all L2 flows would be very, very stressful to say the least.

What sort of platform is it?
