how to check status of a drainstopped NLB cluster host

I am drain-stopping a host on a OWA NLB cluster (IIS7).  Basically I am getting ready to install Ex SP2 on a production system.  What counters should I use to show how many sessions are still active?  Been drainstopping for HOURS.  I know that this host will be listed as "stopped" when it is drained but I am impatient.....  

..or can you point me to a program or pre-made file that will work great..

please help.

well the concept of drainstop is that the host will no more accept connections and, at the end, it will show as stopped.

Netstat -ano can help you check all the connection opened to this server but I usually run drain-stop for a few hours (typically 2 ~ 3 hours before intervention) and then I just stop it in the host
