Can you help me with wildcard usage in the inputs.conf monitoring path?

Contributor

Hello,

I have the following paths to monitor:

[monitor:///usr/sap/ICP/D15/work/dev_*]
[monitor:///usr/sap/ICP/ASCS14/work/dev_*]

For the several logfile patterns, like dev_*, vmc*, etc.

My idea is to create a separate monitoring entries for each logfile pattern together with the whitelist of it.

However, in order to avoid doubling for the D15 and ASCS15, is it possible to use the wildcards in the monitored path for that?

Like for the example below to use * in the path having sth. as below:

[monitor:///usr/sap/ICP/*/work/dev_*]

Kind Regards,
Kamil

Both * and ... should work in this case. ... also works if there are more levels of subdirectories, * doesn't match / so only works for 1 level.

If you have 2 monitor stanzas that match the same file, you will only forward one copy of it so keep your configurations simple and don't worry about it.
