Maybe using Auditing on the Active Directory.

Check this link out : (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314955).

It says here that you can:

Quote : "For example, the Security log can maintain a record of both valid and invalid logon attempts and events that relate to creating, opening, or deleting files or other objects."

Also, you can use the Performance Counters that get installed under NTDS Performance Object,
which is explained here:
