Trying to understand exactly how directory recursion works in inputs.conf.
Specifically, how does /foo/.../.../.log resolve? Does it recurse through the same set of directories as /foo/.../.log ?
Also, can you use "*" in a directory segment to narrow things down a bit? For example: /foo/b*r/.log instead of /foo/.../.log ?
would monitor .log as would the preferred
Additionally, you can use an asterisk within a path as you reference in
...to monitor either /foo/bar/.log or /foo/banbar/.log but neither /foo/bar/lorem/.log nor /foo/lorem/bar/.log
The reason is that 3 consecutive dots represent recursing through any number of directories while an asterisk is a wildcard.
