Since mailbox/folder administration is usually performed over IMAP, you 
can enable telemetry logging to capture that information. see 
'doc/overview.html' within the cyrus-imapd source for documentation. e.g.:

mkdir /var/lib/cyrus/log/cyrus    (for the cyrus user)
chown cyrus:mail /var/lib/cyrus/log/cyrus

mkdir /var/lib/cyrus/log/dwhite   (for user dwhite)
chown cyrus:mail /var/lib/cyrus/log/dwhite

Also, you may want to add this to imapd.conf:
sasl_log_level: 7
