On a running system, how do I determine which SATA speed (1.5/3/6) the
disk are currently connected at?

I found this:

None of the methods described work :-(  (dmesg, smartctl,
hdparm,  /sys/class/ata_link/*/sata_spd ).

The boards have an ICH7R controller which is 3Gbps, so I'm pretty
certain about the speed, but surely there is a way to tell?

# hdparm -t /dev/sda

 Timing buffered disk reads: 810 MB in  3.00 seconds = 269.92 MB/sec
linux-wacn:/home/jdd # hdparm -T /dev/sda

 Timing cached reads:   26492 MB in  1.99 seconds = 13291.32 MB/sec
linux-wacn:/home/jdd #

That's the actual disk speed, not the bus speed.

Cheers / Saludos,
