After further dinking around I see I can get copious amounts of info
most of which I don't need. Kind of like life in general.

Is there a way to get customized logs so that I get an entry of the

<timestamp> <IP or machine name> <Samba User> <filename>

It would be a bonus if I could tell if the file was read or written.

Any help with this appreciated and pointers to docs welcome.
