multitail ?

-iw file interval
-Iw file interval Like '-i'/'-I' but expects the parameter to be a
wildcard and the second(!) an interval. Initially MultiTail will start
monitoring the first file with the most recent modification time.
Every interval it will check if any new files were created (or
modified) and start tailing that one. *Don't forget* to put quotation
marks around the filename as otherwhise the shell will try to substite
