I'm looking for an ftp server for linux that will satisfy the following constraints

  • Should be able to log when a file transfer (STOR command) is initiated.
  • Should be able to log the time taken for the data transfer to complete (the actual time spent transfering data as part of a STOR command).
  • Both of the above log statements should have millisecond accuracy

Does any ftp server have these features?

ProFTPD did not, until seeing your post, have this capability. However, I filed it as a feature request, and the code implementing this has been merged. So now I'm happy to say that proftpd would meet your needs/requirements.
