Report of file usage from Samba server?


I've got a Samba file server set up on a headless machine (logging in via OpenSSH).

I've searched Google and the Samba documentation and this forum, but couldn't find any answer

How do I get Samba to give me a report on what's been transferred to and from the Samba share? (Including guest access).

Is this logged somewhere, or do I need to set up a script? Any straight forward way of doing this?

The best I can think of is to use iptables to log who and when. You could also limit access by ip and or mac address.
