The only reliable test of a service is to use it. I.e. to read
or write a file. If you just want to know if there is an AFS
client, try rxdebug to port 7001 (for OpenAFS).

$ rxdebug localhost 7001
Trying (port 7001):
Free packets: 130, packet reclaims: 0, calls: 309, used FDs: 64
not waiting for packets.
0 calls waiting for a thread
1 threads are idle

$ rxdebug localhost 7001 -v
Trying (port 7001):
AFS version:  OpenAFS 1.4.14 built  2011-06-06
