Is there a way to find out who has been a client to a service server,

or can we echo service requests that a server gets at run-time

In general, are there ways to monitor/investigate service servers and clients?

This is unfortunately not supported by the standard tools.

are there non-standard tools or packages that may help about investigating ros services?

You could try Wireshark. It has support for TCPROS. It's not going to be a similar user-experience as rostopic echo though.

I'm not aware of any more convenient tools (but that doesn't mean there aren't any).
