How to check if squid is alive ?

This is probably a very simple one. How can I check from a remote unix box if my proxy server is still alive. I know I can use ping, but that won't tell me if squid is responding. I know squid comes with a program called client, but I don't know how to use it, neither is there any manual for it.

Anybody any suggestions?

I want to know so I can have a backup-proxy server for my users.

Thanks in advance.
