Shutdown without logging?

Could someone kindly dump a list of possible events that would result in a
GlassFish 3.1.2.2 instance (a DAS) running on Windows as a Windows service
created via asadmin create-service to shutdown so abruptly that nothing
would show up in its server.log? We see the restart when someone manually
restarted it, but there's nothing before that indicating a shutdown.

Power cycling of the box is not the cause; it's been up for a long time.

(Obviously we're going through the computer event logs, but I'm also
curious from the GlassFish end. I'm mainly trying to make sure something
obvious didn't slip through the cracks.)

Thanks,
Laird

A related question: is this (
https://blogs.oracle.com/foo/entry/how_to_make_v3_platform) still relevant?
Suppose it were. I would think, then, that if we didn't have -Xrs present
in both asadmin.bat and the relevant domain.xml that we would be seeing the
GlassFish service dropping all over the place (on every logout, in fact
:-)). But we aren't; we're only seeing it occasionally.

Still, we haven't manually edited the GlassFish distribution to include
this -Xrs option since it was not present in the Installation Guide (
http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E26576_01/doc.312/e24935/toc.htm). Should we
have?

Best,
Laird
