Within a Server 2016 AD network what program, utility, or command can I run to view which Active Directory users are logged onto which computers?

If this can't be done with the native Server 2016 software utilities, power shell or command line commands, what kind of software can be purchased to do this?

For a free utility, you can use PsLoggedOn, by Microsoft.

Here's a different method using WMIC:

Revised to show ComputerName,UserName:

@echo off
setlocal

for /f "Tokens=1" %%c in ('net view /domain:"%USERDOMAIN%"^|Findstr /L /C:"\\"') do (
	for /f "delims=\" %%A in ('echo %%c') do (
		wmic.exe /node:%%A computersystem get name,username | find /v /i "username"
	)
)
endlocal
goto :EOF

The other question you had.
If you setup login/logout scripts that registers each user, date time, computer, logon server against which it authenticated, console, logout time...
Apply to the user OU, no matter what system the user logs into, you'll have the information to query as you see fit.
Which users are loggin into a system, which system a user used, duration of time

    Get the user profile information from the workstation itself and look for the LastAccessTime.  Here is a PowerShell script: http://portal.sivarajan.com/2010/07/user-profile-and-os-info-powershell.html

    Here is another logon script you can check: http://www.rlmueller.net/Logon5.htm
