hi my friends,

I have some logs like this:

--localhost_access_log2016-06-24.txt
--localhost_access_log2016-06-25.txt
--localhost_access_log2016-06-26.txt
--localhost_access_log2016-06-27.txt
--localhost_access_log2016-06-28.txt
--localhost_access_log2016-06-29.txt

I only want to get the log generated today, but I do not know how to configure inputs.conf.

Can u help me?
