How do I tell if I've minted a block

Right now just running against testnet, so I don’t expect to be minting any blocks for now (runnng 1BP and one relay). However, I didn’t see any options in the cardano-cli that would provide any block balance. Would the log, at Info or Notice level, show this happening? I see sites like that will show the number of blocks minted on mainnnet, but I was hoping there could be a more localized procedure to check how many blocks my pool has minted, or to alert on when I have minted a block. If I jump to mainnet, I would like that option.

I think cntools are a nice set to use. will give you all the block info you need:

There are several ways to get this info - (and yes the ultimate is using cntools as @ADA4Good suggested)
