Count 403.7, and 403.8 errors in IIS logs, if you use the default settings (not 404 error code). You may parse out such rows and check from which IP addresses the requests come.
403.7 and 403.8 are special for dynamic IP restriction module (each matches a rule category). So counting them in IIS logs is enough.

That's a valid feature request, as if you are using a tool such System Center Operation Manager, then monitoring event logs is easier than IIS logs. But since it is already an RC, not very likely Microsoft will add any new feature to this release.
