Getting Data In

Wildcard for subfolders

Explorer

I need to index a CSV file that gets created daily in a folder with that day's name on it.
So today's path is ..long path...\default\20111128\2Eb4DcXy.csv

Can I use wildcards or a variable for date in the inputs.conf in order to grab this file? Like this: ..long path....\default\ * \2Eb4DcXy.csv

You can use the "..." syntax to recurse directories and

Here is an example in the inputs.conf file:

[monitor::...default...2Eb4Dcy.csv]

or

[monitor::...default*2Eb4Dcy.csv]

or

[monitor::...default...]
