Checking a daemon has started

I'm running ddclient to update dynamic dns, ddclient works well and I've configured it to start at bootup with this command

/sbin/chkconfig/ --add ddclient

I can start the daemon manually with
/etc/rc.d/init.d/ddclient start
gives the syslog output 'ddclient: ddclient startup startup suceeded

My question is how can I check the daemon has started at bootup, I assume there's a log file somewhere with the information in?

Why not just:
ps aux | grep ddclient
