    None from SCCM.

    SCCM favours the patient.

    You can monitor the logs being created though. Let me know if you want me to elaborate.

    If you have Notification turned on for the update agent in the agents settings there will be an icon in the client systray.

    Also I think there is a report if you filter the reports by the word update it will narrow the selection. That show the status of a update deployment per collection and maybe per computer.
