You can use "rabbitmqctl rotate_logs", as described in

If you need further details then you may need to consult the Erlang
sources in error_logger_file_h.erl

If you installed the broker as a Windows service then messages about
that service may appear in the eventlog. Regular broker log messages
will not appear in the eventlog unless you make special arrangements for
that to happen.
(e.g. see http://www.erlang.org/doc/man/nteventlog.html)
