Filebeat Service Timeout on Linux Server

Hi, I'm running into as issue with starting the filebeat service.
Whenever I start the service sudo systemctl start filebeat

Filebeat begins working, but the command never finishes executing.
After about a 20 minute period the something (the os probably) kills the service because it never finished starting.

Does anyone know why this might be happening?

Everything is /var/log/messages, and /var/log/filebeat point to the timeout being the issue, but I can't figure out why it's timing out.

Found out my issue, the filebeat.service unit needed to be changed from 'forking' to 'simple'

Thanks to everyone for their help.
