You should refer to the <confluence-home>/logs/atlassian.confluence.log . Look for the line starting confluence in the log. From there, you will see a series of plugins and enviroment variables that are loaded during start up.
Your Confluence should be up and running after the line init Confluence ready to server if there is not fatal error or exception.
Hope this helps.
