[Samba] Traffic accounting with samba on per-user-basis - possible?

I would like to account the amount of traffic caused by accessing the samba
file server on a per-(samba)-user basis. However I did not find any clear
information like "XYZ bytes of data transferred" in the logfile (with
loglevel10). Is there a nice way to extract this information from the
logfiles? Has anybody done this?

Do you know any other way to account this traffic? Since smbd su's to the
user in question maybe using http://www.crash-override.net/utadragon.html
will succeed - has anyone tried this?

Running Version 3.0.14a on linux 2.6.
