Need a script to check replication health of DCs in multiple forests

Anyone has a handy script (could be VB, powershell or command) that can check replication health of multiple forests and save the results to a log file? Please advise. There will be multiple creds because it'd be querying different multiple forests....

Thank you!

I know you stated script, but have you looked at the AD Replication Status Tool?

Here is an article or 2 with a powershell script.  Basically wraps repadmin in PS and generates a report.

2. http://jeffwouters.nl/index.php/2014/01/use-powershell-and-repadmin-to-get-active-directory-replication-status/

And a tweak on the second article's command, that outputs a CSV file in the directory where the command is run from:

ConvertFrom-Csv -InputObject (repadmin.exe /showrepl * /csv) | export-csv ps-adrep-status.csv -NoTypeInformation -UseCulture
