We had the same problem - as RHEL 5.x is not supported by the Go language anymore the Beats won't work. You need at least RHEL 6.x:

If for any reason you have to still work with RHEL 5.x you might want to check out LogStash and its file-input.

Best regards

thanks,but if i start up filebeat 6.2.3.It can work. Just the version 6.6.1,it is not worked!

I guess this is because Beats 6.3 upgraded go to version 1.9.4:

ok ,thanks!
