Close inactive option in filebeat

I do have file which may in active for long time so I cant use close_inactive option in filebeat so is there any option to disable this. inactivity time might be days so


Did you try to set the ignore_older to a few days?

But my flebeat is stopping itself if file is inactive for longer period. So after this new events are not index because FB is auto stopped. I use fllowing command for running filebeat.

nohup ./filebeat -c filebeat.yml &

on Linux machine

no I didn't use this. Even my log file is moved to another location (other than file path pattern) daily or exceeding 50 MB size.
