comment How can I rotate many log files into a different subdirectory per rotation?
It seems that postrotate will do the trick. The only thing I need to add is purging the old directories that are over a certain count or older than a certain date.

comment How can I replace email alerts for system events with something more scalable?
Thank you for the Amazon SNS suggestion. I don't think it's going to work due to the restrictions of this project but could be helpful for something similar in the future. I've ended up using Nagios passive checks for now (nagios.sourceforge.net/docs/3_0/passivechecks.html).

comment Send input to background process
Are the only commands that you're trying to send shutdown or restart commands? Are you trying to run this as a daemon rather than just a process within your shell session?

comment Adding a timestamp to bash script log
That will only add the timestamp once per execution of script.sh. The OP needs a timestamp per line.

comment How can I replace email alerts for system events with something more scalable?
In my case this would not work. The services aren't accessible outside the internal network and some of the alerts come from scripts running via cron so there's no daemon to check.

comment How can I make an EC2 instance report a custom hostname
Also, please edit the title. I'd edit it to be something like "How can I make an EC2 instance report a custom hostname?" but I'm not certain that's what you were asking.
