Enable use of wildcards in the Watched directories list of File Agent
Currently one can only define a list of directories in CDFA. Each of this directory must be explicitely defined and hence cannot contain wildcards.
The "Monitor sub-directories" option can be activated but this can result, in case of a complex directory structure, to the useless scan of directories and files that are not relevant (and for which no rule has been defined)
This has a significant impact on CDFA performance and prevent it to run every minute.
With this change it will be possible to define the "Watched directories" with wildcards.
CDFA will then only scan the directories that match the given pattern and hence improve its performance by a significant factor.
Implementation proposal: CDFA should
1. perform a list command (dir or ls) to retrieve the list of the directories matching the pattern
2. loop on all the results of this list command and work as usual (also monitoring sub-directories when activated)
What is your industry?
How will this idea be used?
In our configuration we need to scan and process files within a directory structure that is dynamic and contains at one level the application username. The files that we want to process are after this username directory level.
