crypto engine large-mod-accel

Hello

Cisco advice to enable crypto engine large-mod-accel to switch large modulus operations from software to hardware to improve performance and decrease CPU. Is that true even if on my firewall there are no vpn neither ipsec or ssl ? I can't understand why with the show crypto accelerator statistics I see a large amount of outbound bytes [Global Statistics] and outbound SSL records [SSL statistics] which is not justified by any vpn. That command should have a performance impact on SSL throughput, but it is meant to be only SSL vpn throughput ?
