I have a PCIe (ver 2) linux system. I want to find out how many PCIe lanes were negotiated and are being used between my device and the host controller . (I do not know how many lanes my device supports or how many lanes the slot has)

1 Answer 1


lspci -vv should give you this information, look for the "Width" part in the LnkCap section.

    Note that "LnkCap" is the capability of the slot, and "LnkSta" is the actual status of the card. I had to run this as root to get the link info.
