How to configure 8 ports to be in stand by in an lacp etherchannel ?

How to configure 8 ports to be in stand by in an lacp etherchannel ?           

Here is the output from my switch:

Switch3#show etherchannel port

                Channel-group listing:

                ----------------------

Group: 3

----------

                Port-channels in the group:

                ---------------------------

Port-channel: Po3    (Primary Aggregator)

------------

Age of the Port-channel   = 00d:00h:07m:18s

Logical slot/port   = 2/3       Number of ports = 16

GC                  = 0x00000000      HotStandBy port = null

Port state          = Port-channel

Protocol            =   LACP

Port Security       = Disabled

Ports in the Port-channel:

Here all the 16 ports are active, but i read that only 8 ports will be up at any given time on cisco page.

When enabled, LACP tries to configure the maximum number of  LACP-compatible ports in a channel, up to a maximum of 16 ports. Only  eight LACP links can be active at one time. The software places any  additional links in a hot-standby mode. If one of the active links  becomes inactive, a link that is in the hot-standby mode becomes active  in its place.

If you configure more than eight links for an EtherChannel group, the  software automatically decides which of the hot-standby ports to make  active based on the LACP priority. To every link between systems that  operate LACP, the software assigns a unique priority made up of these  elements (in priority order):

Can someone please let me know where i'm going wrong ?
