Certainly there are some instance when there is no traffic from the peer connected to the switch port and the traffic comes when you initiate the device as an example packet analyser.
Traffic will only come when you initiate the packet analyser to work.
The silent mode is used when the switch is connected to a device that is not PAgP-capable ) non cisco device ) and seldom, if ever, sends packets.
An example of a silent partner is a file server or a packet analyzer that is not generating traffic. In this case, running PAgP on a physical port connected to a silent partner prevents that switch port from ever becoming operational; however, the silent setting allows PAgP to operate, to attach the interface to a channel group, and to use the interface for transmission
If your switch is connected to a partner that is PAgP-capable, you can configure the switch interface for nonsilent operation by using the non-silent keyword. If you do not specify non-silent with the auto or desirable mode, silent mode is assumed
