I have configured a site-to-site vpn tunnel between two Cisco ASA devices and would like to view the status of the tunnel using ASDM to determine whether the tunnel is up or down.
Would someone please point me in the right direction?  Thank you.

If you select "Monitoring" in the top bar of the ASDM-window and down to the left select "VPN" you will get a list of all current sessions. If you select "Filte by: IPsec site-to-site" and click "Filter" you will see a total llist of all current l2l-tunnels. From there you can also tear down the tunnel by pressing "Logoug".

If the tunnel is not visible in that view, the tunnel is down.

In ASDM, select [Monitoring]
In left column select VPN, Sessions
Now in the right hand side you should see a count at the top of active sessions and a "filter by:" selection. Filter by Site-to-Site and click the [Filter] button
You can select an active connection and there is a [Details] button to the right
