what are the signs of a ruptured hernia?

Hernia is a rupture: Assuming you are talking about external abdominal hernias (not herniated disc or internal abdominal hernias), and you care concerned about incarceration or strangulation, any pain, nausea, vomiting, abdominal distention, urinary symptoms are warning signs. If you develop any of those, or if the hernia becomes so large that it is cosmetically unsightly, then you need an operation to fix it.
