Is it possible to record "number of scans" performed information down at supplicant level and make it available at Application layer?

I am interested in recording the number of scan trials happening at the
wpa_supplicant daemon service and want that available at the Application

I know that wpa_supplicant data structure has "scan_runs" integer member
element which can inform me of the number of scan runs performed after the
supplicant service started running.
However I do not know how to record these value somehow and make it
available to an application running at the top.

I can insert a Log message in the scan.c file and make it log always so that
when I am connected to ADB, I can see the information but I feel this method
is ugly !
Can I write information directly onto a file say "xyz.txt" in /data
directory or somewhere so that I can retrieve it later using a rooted

Please guide me so that I can perform this recording of information.
