Is there a tool for checking if the rosmaster is up using rospy?

Something along the lines of roscpp's ros::master::check()?

Might not be the best answer but the sample code in Master_API page might work for your purpose. If no master is running, the follwoing line would fail with socket.error:

code, msg, val = m.getSystemState(caller_id)
