Any kernel newer than 2.6.13 has a built in API called inotify that can
alert userspace apps of changes to the filesystem. The program for doing
that is called inotify-tools. You can specify what directories you want
to watch and what events you want to watch for (create, read, write,
rename, move, close, etc.).

Does anyone know how can I monitor files that was being open and access
in the samba directory? If this was not possible, is there third party
apps that can help me do what I want?
