Filebeat Config file

I Need a help with the file beat config:
I'm trying to read the data from a log file whose size remains the same and its modification time is changed every 30 mins.During these 30 mins interval new logs are added in place of the old logs.
Can someone suggest sometime,I tried multiple things but its not reading the newly added logs in the file.
Filebeat - 7.16.2
Running on Windows Server 2019

Filebeat Config:

  • type: filestream
    enabled: true
    paths : 'path of the file'
    tags: ['console_data']

Filebeat Logs:

After the initial read it keeps giving me the same response

Hi @Dasher ,
Below I've shared filebeat example yml.
Read documentation and try with ignore_older.Any file modification done within 1 hour will always be read and after 1 hour logs altered wont be read.

- type: log
  enabled: true
   - /p/logs/mis/**/*.log
  ignore_older: 1h
