Automated FTP Notification when file uploaded by user


I am guessing this might be trivial, but the answer eludes me.

I want to have an email sent to our system admin when a file is uploaded from a user to our ftp site. We use VSFTPD on Red Hat ES3 LINUX. NO Anonymous users, and the FTP users do not have login permissions, just a bogus shell to allow only FTP access.

I really did not want to do a cron script to monitor the directories so I was hoping that an email could just be sent when a file is uploaded and I really did not want to try to parse out the various log files for this.

Thanks in advance for any recommendations for how to do this.
