How to crawler static file by logstash 'file' input plugin without modifying at beginning

Hi all,

there are 3 log files has been archived, and named 'archived.2016.06.12.log', 'archived.2016.06.13.log' and 'archived.2016.06.14.log'.

my logstash conf content

input {
file {
path => "/home/ubuntu/test_log/a*.log"

Logstash didn't do anything when I start logstash service, which start to crawler after I modify these files.

How to crawler these files after starting logstash service without modifying at beginning? (Archived files will be produced everyday)
