Enable/load mod_status, set ExtendedStatus On, and then visit the
server-status url.  You'll probably want to limit access to it in some
way.  Example:

LoadModule status_module /usr/lib/apache/1.3/

<IfModule mod_status.c>
    ExtendedStatus On
    <Location /server-status>
        SetHandler server-status
        Order deny,allow
        Deny from all
        Allow from
