> smbstatus will give you this information.

I don't think smbstatus shows realtime filesystem activity. Beyond that,
it definitely would not show changes to the filesystem that occur from
other processes besides samba. Perhaps I misunderstood, but I thought
Nelson wanted to watch a directory for changes. To be thorough, that
must include changes that occur in other ways, such as a user just
copying a file into the directory locally.
