Ftp server log files to include more information

I am implementing the ftp server on linux box (fedora 11, vsftpd). Everything works good so far but i need Ftp server log files to contain transfer rate information.

At the moment when I use "get " or " put" command from client end , I got following message on ftp client


ftp: 18 bytes received in 0.00seconds 18000.00kbytes/sec.
Is there is any way , I can get same message on ftp server side?

Below is the sample of my xferlog file

Tue Oct 23 01:28:52 2012 1 1 /home/test/testfile b _ o r test ftp 0 * c
Tue Oct 23 01:32:46 2012 1 18 /home/test/uploadServer b _ i r test ftp 0 * c
Tue Oct 23 01:50:23 2012 1 1 /home/test/testfile a _ o r test ftp 0 * c
Tue Oct 23 01:50:36 2012 1 19 /home/test/test a _ i r test ftp 0 * c

I really appreciate everyone's help here .
Well I have solved that.
I have included
***dual_log_enable= yes*** in the vsftpd.conf file and as a result it created the new log file as /var/log/vsftpd.log and it contains all the information that I need.
