Fsx and Audit logs


Hi, I want to capture logs for Fsx, in such a way that who accessed the file and data. Fsx is mounted on an EC2 instance. Also, shows a message that your folder is empty not having files and data inside it.

As of now cloudWatch is only capturing audit logs by default.

In-order to audit access to files and folders you will have to set audit controls on the files and folders that you want audited for user access attempts. You can configure audit controls using the Windows-native GUI interface or programmatically using Windows PowerShell commands. If inheritance is enabled, you typically need to set audit controls only on the top-level folders you want to log accesses for.

You can also refer the link below for additional details. https://docs.aws.amazon.com/fsx/latest/WindowsGuide/file-access-auditing.html#faa-gui-interface
