Does Cumulus support Filebeats?

I have installed couple of switches and it seems to be installed fine. I have configured the .yml file to ship the logs to destination. The issue I'm running into is when I try to start the service "filebeat" the daemon starts and then it either kills or stop service. I have checked the logs and other files in var/log but couldn't find any logs why why did the daemon stopped.
I also have debug the logs for the filebeat, still didn't provide any details.

Any ideas?

Mihir, a few questions... I'm new to filebeat, it looks interesting...

What version of Cumulus Linux are you using?
Are you using Mgmt VRF and should the logs be sent across MGMT VRF?
Can you provide output from "systemctl status -ln 200 filebeats.service" (or whatever the service name is)?
Hello Eric, Thanks for responding. I'm currently using 2.5.7 & 2.5.12. I had that up running before, but sunnendly the daemon stopped automatically. I even install new verison on filebeat, still the daemon doesn't restart.
