Run service --status-all to get a list off all the Upstart services and their status. (It basically issues a status command for all the services.)

I think service --status-all is for sysvinit managed daemons (as the service command comes from the sysvinit-utils package). The ones managed by Upstart can be seen with initctl list –  yuvilio Jul 24 '12 at 18:28
