ok. Did you have to set any env vars / modify the startup scripts in any
way? And are you running rabbit as root, a dedicated 'rabbitmq' user, or

There is no "start" in there. Shouldn't cause any harm though.
Is there an erl_crash.dump in the directory from which you started rabbit?

I see your rabbit is running the management plugin. Have you been
keeping an eye on it through that? And did anything odd crop up - high
memory or fd use, for example - just before the death?
It is quite rare for rabbit to die, and very unusual indeed for it to do
so without a trace. For that to happen the most likely cause of death is
that something/body is killing it.
