[Samba] Files monitoring through Samba

Thank you for the information.

Is there anyway to run a perl script or shell script when the extd_audit command that sees a log of 0 or 1?

Log Level Log Details - File and Directory Operations 
0 Make Directory, Remove Directory, Unlink 
1 Open Directory, Rename File, Change Permissions/ACLs

Then pass the file that was created or unlinked to the script?

I know I could watch the log, but I thought there would be a better way. Kind of link how the recycle works. It intercepts the unlink and moves it.

I also could just watch for when something was written. That is what I really need. 

ssize_t skel_write(int fd, char *data, size_t n)
    return underlying.write(fd, data, n);

I want the easiest way to do this without having the edit the source code. I am sure someone has done something like this before.

Thanks in advance.
