Adding the files size to windows evernt logs

There is a lot of helpful information being sent to the windows event log about send and receiving files. The only this missing is the file size from the events.

What is your industry? Banking
How will this idea be used?

We can us it to trend files sizes for storage space planning. If the files size is smaller our monitoring system could alerts us to a problem. File sizes a an important part of the process for us when it comes to receiving reports.

    Thank you for opening this request with IBM. I have reviewed it with my team and we believe the file size information you seek is actually stored in the CTRC statistics records that are already available in C:D. As this information is already available in the stats I'll need to reject this request, but I suspect that the existing capabilities should likely meet your needs.
