To be honest this is a system administration issue and not an application issue.

The eventlog viewer does let you filter out certain events, or filter on certain events. I frequently see the Wintel administrators at my place filter on certain codes to find account lockout events. They have also set up a job to export the eventlogs from all Domain Controllers and dump them into a SQL Server database.
