Use fuser to see which sound device is used:

$ fuser /dev/snd/*
/dev/snd/controlC0: 14028
/dev/snd/pcmC0D0c: 14028m
/dev/snd/pcmC0D0p: 14028m

So process 14028 is using capture device 0 substream 0 and playback
device 0 substream 0. Examine the hw_params for playback device like

$ cat /proc/asound/card0/pcm0p/sub0/hw_params
format: S16_LE
subformat: STD
channels: 2
rate: 48000 (48000/1)
period_size: 1024
buffer_size: 2048
tick_time: 1000

This application (jackd) is a sophisticated user of ALSA API and
allows the user to set period and buffer size but many apps just use
the default they get from ALSA. These apps will work well with a
driver that happens to have a large default buffer but will fail
(skip) with drivers that default to a small buffer.
