If you're just publishing diagnostics without an aggregator, you can view the raw diagnostics messages in rqt_runtime_monitor. This is useful for debugging, but can't detect if some items are missing from your diagnostics.

For a more robust system that can detect missing and stale diagnostics, and organize your diagnostics, I recommend setting up a diagnostic aggregator. You can then view your diagnostics in rqt_robot_monitor
