DC Amp clamp like this one. Read the small print to be sure it can read at least 150 amps DC. Most cheap ones CAN'T. You can buy one at Harbor Freight for around $40. READ THE SPECS!!!

Any DVM and a pair of alligator clip test leads to read the alt voltage output at the terminals.

If all is well, then install a battery monitor system if you wish.
