It does. It can also be configured to send email alerts when certain events occur (configurable).

You can also use Foglight for Active Directory: https://software.dell.com/products/foglight-for-active-directory/
it does reporting and also shows you the nice diagram of where the fault of your AD might be.

Thank you though.
