I need to generate statistics using custom metrics which are not available in the Server Manager reports section. How to capture user login ids who successfully downloaded a file in a given month?

There are atleast two ways to accomplish this :

1) Parse the log files in \logs\\ directory and extract the needed data. If you make use of database logging you can write SQL queries against the database to more easily get at this information, e.g. Crystal Reports can be used to generate reports from SQL Server.

2) Setup the server to perform this functonality using triggers & actions. For example setting up a custom action to generate a log file in response to a File Upload Trigger can capture information such as the name of the file which was uploaded, the size of the uploaded file, the time of the upload etc. Although this approach is more involved in does give you the flexibility to use Java programming language & the server's trigger / actions functionality to generate complex statistics.
