I think you mean tmpwatch - logrotate is just for rotating logfiles.

I'd also run a cronjob every hour to remove those ImageMagick files if they're older than a few hours. That way you keep...

100s of servers?? It doesn't really "work" anywhere, because it's a terrible solution. Of course, it will stop a lot of spam, but it will break a lot more websites.

If, perhaps, you're turning it...

It's quite understandable that they don't want to show you every single step, however, they do provide you with a very detailed breakdown of what they've installed and changed after it's done.

I guess that's exactly the point - while all these problems (symlink hack etc) were solved years ago, naive hosters don't know about the fixes and don't implement them.

Seriously, hire a good sysadmin for 2 hours and get your server reviewed. There are so many things to check that you'll waste both your own and our time if you try and solve it here.

In very general terms, if the load average gets high, and all CPUs are running at 100%, CPU is the bottleneck. Best to install some monitoring software and just watch - Nagios, Cacti, Munin etc -...
