Hi,

I'd like to see what users are doing on nas. I would monitor their activity when they did what they were doing,
what they'd been up and down. Do you think there is software for this or an option on freenas?
Thanks in advance for your response. Have a nice day

best regards,
moszio

You could probably turn on auditing at the OS level. I ran auditd for giggles and it started fine, so FreeNAS seems to have the kernel support. See audit_control for details.

Hi, Thank you for replying, we haven't found a solution yet. To do this, you can show a description for audit_control?.
Unfortunately this doesn't work for me :(
Have a nice day!

Code:
root@freenas0:/ # man audit_control
AUDIT_CONTROL(5)          FreeBSD File Formats Manual         AUDIT_CONTROL(5)

NAME
     audit_control – audit system parameters

DESCRIPTION
     The audit_control file contains several audit system parameters.  Each
     line of this file is of the form:
etc


Works for me.

You'll have to read the relevant manual pages and look up documentation for the audit subsystem to determine how to get it to do what you're looking for. I can only give you a shove in the general direction of this probable solution.
