The simplest check is to see if you can connect to the Kafka broker port. That just means the broker is up, but doesn't necessarily mean it is responsive. Another approach is to do a small write or read on an empty testing topic.

This might work OK for 0.7 but you might run into trouble with 0.8 when replication is enabled. Make sure you test all the different scenarios for failure. See the previous discussion thread "Kafka 0.8 Failover Behavior".
Let us know how it works for you.
