Onn Chee,

We've done file level auditing in the past by using a vfs plugin to
intercept operations and log them. We've got an ntvfs module something
like that for Samba4 called 'nbench' that creates its "audit log" in
the form of a nbench load file, which is used to build performance
tests based upon captured data.

For both of the above types of information the messaging system I have
proposed is not suitable as both involve long lived data that needs to
last across restarts. That means the data needs to be written to a
file rather than accessed via 'live' data structures.

So this is another in the category of "yes, it would be nice to do,
but no, thats not what my proposal is about" :-)

Cheers, Tridge
