ElasticSearch crashing - where are the log files?

I'm running ElasticSearch on my EC2 servers. I'm having trouble understanding the logging / debugging of ElasticSearch.

Occasionally, the service disappears, after having been running fine for days (I expect that it's crashing). Eg:

curl -XGET http://localhost:9200/

curl: (7) couldn't connect to host
Per this ElasticSearch page, I expected that my logs would be available in /var/log/elasticsearch... however...

ls /var/data/elasticsearch

ls: /var/data/elasticsearch: No such file or directory
I have not changed the /config/logging.yml file in any way. ElasticSearch is running as root, so there should be no problem with permissions.

What am I missing?
