I'm curious if you guys know of any good Metric Reporting software for Active Directory.  I'm not looking for a "total" ADMS package just more or less something this is ONE, easy to implement and TWO, something that has really robust and customizable reporting features.  As mentioned, I'm only interested in reporting and not total management of AD.  

I understand one could use DSQUERY's, ADFIND, LDAP strings and so on to pull the information needing and I have those things; however I'm looking for more of a one stop reporting solution that will allow me to pull metrics in AD for things such as Empty Groups, Count of security descriptors associated with each OU, Non-Expiring passwords, ect, ect... the standard stuff.    Again, NOT looking for a total ADMS package, I'm only needing to pull metrics from AD.

I am sure - Quest is having such products. But not sure if all your requirement comes in a single suit.

Thanks

ADManager Plus is worth looking at http://www.manageengine.com/products/ad-manager/active-directory-reports-list.html
...but does more than just reports
You can also look at ad reports http://www.javelinasoftware.com/products/ad-elements/adreporter
I use a lot of the command line tools you mentioned for reporting so I don't have a lot of first hand knowledge of the GUI tools.
Test anything out first for sure before buying
Thanks
Mike
