Offline is not possible. You shouldn't consider offline defrag something that needs to be done on a regular basis.
Online defrag is recorded by event ID 1221 in the event viewer of the server. You may seen it multiple times during the hight - for each store.

What do you mean, offline is not possible.  Offline defrag does not show up in the Event IDs?

Offline defrag doesn't show up because it is not a system event. You have to physical stop Exchange and then run a tool on the databases. There is nothing to log.

Offline defrag is not a regular event and shouldn't be considered so. Many people like to treat as such, but it is something that should be hardly done, if at all.
