Monitoring at the packet level? .... tcpdump port 21

Other points/levels of monitoring depend on how you have vsftpd 

At the login level you can monitor /var/log/messages

 tail -f /var/log/messages | grep pam_userdb

if you have virtual users set up.

At the file transfer level you can monitor your xferlog file if 
you've configured this logging mechanism.

Also at the login level you can set up vsftpd to run under xinetd 
and log user, host, etc by watching /var/log/secure

  tail -f /var/log/secure | grep vsftpd
