You can see how many hints node_a has stored for node_b, and look at how
large that is on disk, but that's about it. If you exhaust
max_hint_window_in_ms there is literally no way to know how out of sync you
are until you run repair.

Other notes :

1) If you're asking this question, you probably have not internalized what
the "eventual" part of eventual consistency really means to your
2) RF=N=2 is not a recommended production configuration. Minimal
recommended is usually RF=3, N=6.
