Is there any information in a system log that helps me to know when the app was shutdown?. Could you please help
Not enough information to say. If the app was killed (like with a "kill -9"), then the only way to know would be if the application itself wrote something before dying, or to look at everyone's .bash_history, to see who issued the kill statement.
If the application has a shutdown script, that may tell something, but since you don't say anything about what the application is, any details about it, or version/distro of Linux, we can't really be of much help.
