Without turning on debugging, is there a way to know which file nxlog is currently processing?

I want to track how far it is behind new logs getting created. Its working fine right now, but I want to be able to track this over time and see how it changes- so leaving debugging turned on wont work.

It does lock the logs its processing so I could potentially check the logs with procmon or something and see which one is locked by the nxlog process- but does nxlog have a native way telling me this?

It does not lock log files as that would create problems with some log sources and prevent those from writing the files.

I don't see any way you could currently track what im_file is doing.
