I'm trying to configure inputs.conf to only read the current days file that contains the date. The file name changes daily. An example file name would be: localhost.2015-01-06.log. How do I configure the inputs.conf file to only read current day file on a windows server? I don't want to read all files (localhost.*.log).
In inputs.conf, there is a property called "ignoreOlderThan". Setting this property will ensure that the files whose last modification time is older than specified values (e.g. 1d, one day) will be ignored. See more here:-
