Configuration File

In your main configuration file append the following Input & Output sections:

    Name          disk
    Tag           disk
    Interval_Sec  1
    Interval_NSec 0
    Name   stdout
    Match  *

Note: Total interval (sec) = Interval_Sec + (Interval_Nsec / 1000000000).

e.g. 1.5s = 1s + 500000000ns
