How can you tell if onboard encrypter is working

I just installed VMWARE and it shows a built in encrypter. I run phpsysinfo and it does not show up, but i see it when pfsense vmware appliance run's. The system is working great.
I am really glad that running pfsense again, it is much fast, than the netgear router than I have been using.
I really like the control over the VPN tunnels that I get. It is huge improvement.
Are you using IPsec or OpenVPN?
If FreeBSD supports that crypto chip, it should be used automatically by IPsec, but there isn't a real good test for that.
For OpenVPN, you can test with and without the cryptodev settings, and also with OpenSSL at the CLI:
If you are just seeing the "cryptosoft0" line, however, that is not an accelerator.
