Note that the shutdown log is just a capture of stdout from the command 
that shuts down the server - normally it should not contain anything 
interesting. You could check its timestamp though I think.

There *are* messages logged to the main log file when the server shuts 
down, and those have timestamps. In 2.8.4 these should say "Stopping 
Rabbit" when the shutdown commences, and "Halting Erlang VM" when 
shutdown is complete, both logged with INFO severity.

Cheers, Simon
