RE: Wildcard path for spooling directory source?
Nathan, the current code base does not have subdirectory support,

If it's any consolation , I have a working patch to the Flume 1.4 code base for an enhancement to add support for sub directories (FLUME-1899<https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLUME-1899>).    I just need to dedicate some time to finalize testing.  For now you would have to keep all of the files in the same directory.

Subject: Wildcard path for spooling directory source?

Does the spooling directory source support wilcards in the path?
I am looking to watch a list of directories without having to reconfigure the agent when a new path is added.

spoolingDir = /var/log/sources/*

and when I add a new directory to the /var/log/sources dir, such as  /var/log/sources/1,  /var/log/sources/2, etc, the files placed there are automatically picked up by the agent.
