Cisco VPN Monitor CLi

Hi I would like to find out how to monitor site to site vpn conections on cisco routers and PiX/ASA firewalls using the CLi.

I usually monitor it through the SDM (routers) or ASDM (firewalls).
Though  i find that for SDM you need older versions of Java for you to get full functionality.

so basically what i m looking for is see if the site to site vpn tunnel/tunnels are up.

thanks in advance
