I'm trying to log the shutdown messages in my linux, I see "Asking all remaining processes to terminate..." and then there is a big delay, and then there is some other chatter and log messages which whizz past too quickly to read before the machine shutdown.
Here's what I've tried:
sudo find /var/log -type f -print0 | xargs -0 sudo zgrep "all remaining process"
But the message I see isn't anywhere there. Is that stuff logged anywhere? If not, is there a way to log it?
I'm on Ubuntu 13.10.
