Wanting to build on some stats and having more information, I have been exploring around to seek for file access/login/logout logs. I would like to know how other people do it or would do it. Here's an example of what I'm looking at :

20-07-2016 12:36:03 user1 accessed file //data/project1/review.xls
20-07-2016 12:36:22 user22 logged in eDirectory
20-07-2016 12:37:17 user29 logged out eDirectory

I've seen eDirectory audit, but I'm not sure that's what I want and even at that, I understand I should have an audit secure logging server?

Thanks in advance.
