I operate a vps server, and each VE has cpanel with spamassasin running. I am wonder if a small VE within under say 10 sites needs to have 5 spamd child processes running all the time, or can I reduce the number of spamd processes running on some of those servers? And if I can reduce the number that are running safely, where would I make that change?

Go on, have a guess
You definitely can ad should reduce them. I'd suggest setting it down to 2. you can do it by installing the WHM > Addon Modules > spamdconf > install it, refresh the browser and then go into the new option at the bottom of the WHM > Addons > menu and just et the number of children.
