about splunk list monitor command

Builder

I want to know specification of CLI command list monitor.

I configured like below in inputs.conf

[monitor///dirA/sample/*.log]
[monitor///dirB/test/*.log]

And there are about ten thousand logs in each dir sample and test.

Then I did the command list monitor, and result displayed each logs under the /dirA/sample/ but result displayed only the path /dirB/test/.

Why this difference occur?
Perhaps list monitor only display the files that are already being monitored and are in input processing, and not display the files that have been queued yet?
Or is it correct to display all files that originally correspond to the monitoring setting?

I saw a manual but I can't understand it...
I hope someone can tell me.

I have a similar issue. List monitor is not showing files being monitored, yet in my inputs.conf, its listed. What could be the reason?
