I think many people over the years have done the obvious.  That is to 
to use `cdcc stats`, `cdcc info`, or perhaps `cdcc rtt` with nagios and
other system monitoring schemes.
Depending on where you run the `cdcc` command and whether you use
something like `cdcc info` (and so the local /var/dcc/map file) or
`cdcc "host; id 76544; password secret; stats`
you would be checking what local DCC clients see or the health of the server.

The dcc-servers mailing list has a thread that mentions nagios plugins:
That mailing list is open only to operators of DCC servers.  See
