I am looking for and have not found where the user interface of Windows Server 2012's AD and Server Management tools, I can see the replication status of domain (Active Directory) data replication, similar to the stuff that you could query using dfsrdiag from the command line. Is there something built in?
I have found an installable tool ADREPLSTATUS that may offer some of this information, but I am wondering if there is any built in UI for this. I have searched the Active Directory Administrative Center and the Server Manager to no effect. The old Replmon went out of style a long time ago.
See the AskDS post 'Getting over Replmon': The idea is that repadmin, a command-line tool, can do everything and more that the GUI Replmon could do, only faster and more efficiently. Then, if you still just really can't stand not having a GUI, then you can install AD Replication Status Tool, which you have already found.

Edit: Just to clarify, the standard suite of Remote Server Administration Tools such ADUC, Sites and Services, ADSI Edit, etc., are of course still included with Server 2012. You'll get them automatically on a DC, or on any member server if you install the RSAT optional feature. But for monitoring replication status, it's the repadmin command line tool, or the downloadable AD Replication Status tool.

You can use ReplMon to do the following: • See when a replication partner fails. • View the history of successful and failed replication changes for troubleshooting purposes. • View the properties of directory replication partners.
• Create your own applications or scripts written in Microsoft Visual Basic Scripting Edition (VBScript) to extract specific data from Active Directory. • View a snapshot of the performance counters on the computer, and the registry configuration of the server. • Generate status reports that include direct and transitive replication partners, and detail a record of changes. • Find all direct and transitive replication partners on the network. • Display replication topology. • Poll replication partners and generate individual histories of successful and failed replication events. • Force replication.
• Trigger the Knowledge Consistency Checker (KCC) to recalculate the replication topology. • Display changes that have not yet replicated from a given replication partner. • Display a list of the trust relationships maintained by the domain controller being monitored. • Display the metadata of an Active Directory object's attributes. • Monitor replication status of domain controllers from multiple forests.
