I try to develop some software which is aware of files and directories
being created, edited, renamed and deleted.
My final goal is to start automatic conversion of files based on these
events and to create some kind of autoversioning or bridging from samba
Now my problem:
At the moment I am quite confused by the load of operations created by
e.g. a new directory. While I am monitoring samba with the full_audit
VFS modul I get no mkdir. The only message that is somehow connected to
that new directory is open with 'w' flag. The unlink operation is an
other example, in a few minutes of surfing through the dir tree I get a
few hundreds of them without deleting anything.
So I would like to know where I can find out about when which operation
Is there some information in the sourcecode? I only read the modules
files so far and I couldn't find any usefull informations in the CIFS
documentation or the other samba developer doucments.
I am thankfull for any hints or tipps. :-)
