Custom Metadata - MapR-FS

I am new to MapR, I am exploring its use as a file storage system.

What possibilities are there to associate custom meta-data with 'normal' files stored in mapr-fs? (The metadata could be a customer record ID, project number, or some other set of one or more data to associate the file with database records - think of the metadata one can associate with documents in sharepoint, M-Files, etc).

If the user has access to the files via NFS - what 'hooks' or 'triggers' are available to update the metadata or log the user action (e.g. delete the metadata if the user deletes the file)?
