You probably do want ipmon using syslog (i.e. "ipmon -D -s -o I")

If you RTFM for ipmon(8) you'll find that ipmon uses the facility
"local0" and sends messages there at varying priority levels.

Changing the above to the following will prevent any ipmon-related
entries from ever being sent to /dev/console:

  *.err;kern.*;auth.notice;authpriv.none;local0.none;mail.crit /dev/console

But a better solution would be to avoid using /dev/console for normal
sessions.  Login on some other screen/terminal/etc....
