The feature you are looking for is called "audit logs".  It used to
exist on code branch for the Hendrix project but I don't see it on our
current roadmap.  Likely, given the age of the Hendrix code, it would
take some non-insignificant work to port forward to current Lustre.

That said, we do have a "server changelogs" feature coming in 2.0 and
while that will likely log the filesystem changes, I'm not sure if/that
it will log the uid responsible for the change.
