How can I monitor the files within a directory but ignore its subdirectories?
e.g. I want to monitor all files in c:\mydir
However mydir contains a folder called temp how can I configure my inputs.conf file so that the files in the folder temp are not monitored.
I know I can use a blacklist for temp, however lets say mydir contains numorous other directories is there a way to just blacklist all directories within mydir?
You can use the blacklist:
_blacklist = (?i)^c:\\mydir\\[^\\]+\\

You can also use a wildcard to only include immediate files within the directory.
