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.

Sorry, I have used Foglight, it was a nightmare for us then.  Our experience was that it was super complicated, broke easily, and had java memory issues their tech support admitted and would not fix.  

Thank you though.
