Getting Data In

Specifying a catch-all in inputs.conf?

Observer

Hi,

 

If i have a directory structure like this:

/logs/server1

/logs/server2

/logs/server3

 

And i have set specific inputs.conf stanzas for server 1,2 and 3, but i also want to catch everything that ends up in /logs/, could i set the server1-3 stanzas and have a catch all stanza, or will that catch all stanza collect the logs from server 1-3 again?

 

 

 

 

[monitor:///logs/server1]
host_segment = 2
index = foo
sourcetype = aaa

[monitor:///logs/server3]
host_segment = 2
index = bar
sourcetype = bbb

[monitor:///logs/server3]
host_segment = 2
index = baz
sourcetype = ccc

[monitor:///logs]
index = unknown
