Description (partial)

Output from "show crypto accelerator statistics" is misleading - it doesn't reflect real throughput of crypto layer in some ASA models and in all Firepower models:

# Show Crypto Accelerator Statistics

Crypto Accelerator Status
   Supports hardware crypto: True
   Supports modular hardware crypto: False
   Max accelerators: 4
   Max crypto throughput: 2000 Mbps <--- this value
   Max crypto connections: 10000

For ASA hardware, it was observed on ASA5585-S40. For Firepower appliances it's universal for all platforms.
