Tracking the start and complete of a download?

  How could I configure nginx so that when a download is started and 
when it completes, it makes a HTTP GET request to another web server?


1.  User requests   (the 
filename and some additional getargs)
2.  nginx calls   
(passes the original url with getargs)
3.  nginx serves byte-range requests of to user
4.  nginx determines that all byte-range requests have been served and 
(passes the original url with getargs)
