What is the best way to check the status of your AD replication on a weekly basis? I am putting together a checklist of weekly functions and this is one of them. I know that you can go in and use replmon to look at the logs or check to see if replication has failed........but I guess what I am looking for is a tool, script, or process that will allow me quickly verify that there are no issues with replication.

execute repadmin /showrepl on each domain controller.
Also execute dcdiag.exe and netdiag.exe
