Filebeat installation is deleted from the file system

Hi,

I have installed filebeat on client machine, after some hours, file beat installation is deleted and saved as filebeat.rmv file and modules.d/ remained.

I have installed it through yum

Can someone please look into this

Regards,
Suresh

Sounds like you might have some security or anti-virus software running.

I got below output from /var/log/messages
