Getting Data In

Is there a file name length limit when monitoring them?


When ingesting csv files we get the warning and error in _internal -

ERROR TailReader [5588 tailreader0] - error from read call from <file name>

WARN FileClassifierManager [5588 tailreader0] - The file <file name> is invalid. Reason: cannot_open.

It happens when the new file, placed in the directory has the same 70 or so characters as an existing file.

Shorting the file name and the ingestion worked just fine.

Is there a limit for comparison?
