How to configure inputs.conf to monitor a directory with multiple folders, but ignore certain folders based on date in the path name?

Explorer

Hi

Now I'm working with many sub directories. I want to monitor some directories and don't want to monitor others.

This is example folder that I want to monitor and ignore some folder.

/home/user/2016-02-31/01/local3/
/home/user/2016-03-01/01/local3/
/home/user/2016-03-02/01/local7/
/home/user/2016-03-05/01/local3/

I want to monitor every folder dated in March and ignore folders dated in February.

I don't know how to configure inputs.conf. Now I'm using CLI (add monitor) for each folder.

[monitor:///home/user/......./*] << I don't know how to ignore folder on Feb.

Please kindly advise me.

Thank you

The inputs.conf blacklist feature should be serviceable for you:

[monitor:///home/user/......./*]
blacklist = /home/user/\d\d\d\d-02-\d\d/.*
