How many queues per interface on a Cisco Switch

On 6500 switch do some interfaces have 2 queues and some 3 queues?

What command would I enter to find out?

This is for wrr-queue configuration commands.

It varies based on the line card.  For IOS such as 12.2SX, try "show mls qos queuing interface".

That the g3/6 interface has 2 ingress queues with 8 thresholds each and for egress there is one priority queue and 3 regular queues which have 8 thresholds.
