You're going to need a hardware test instrument. Some higher-end 
multimeters and wiring testers have frequency counters. You can use a 
standalone frequency/pulse counter. Otherwise, I'd use an 
oscilloscope, with the caveat I know what the pulse train is supposed 
to look like.

I am assuming here that you are talking about physical clock rate on 
a DSU, not throughput rate.  That's a different problem.
