I just installed Bitcoin Core on a new machine and completed IBD using dbcache ~24000. It took ~40 mins to shutdown for the first time (after running for about 24 hours and completing the IBD). I'm wondering if this is normal, or if it could be related to either IBD or having such a high dbcache?

Shutdown logs for reference:

At shutdown, the chainstate cache has to be flushed to disk. The bigger you set dbcache, the bigger this cache can grow, and the longer it can take to flush it.
