This function will retrieve the status for you:

	sys:get_status/1

	http://erlang.org/doc/man/sys.html#get_status-1

If you implement a format_status/2 callback in your gen_server
you can have it pretty print the status data or otherwise dress
it up.

	gen_server:format_status/2

	http://erlang.org/doc/man/gen_server.html#format_status-2
