Anyway, I don't see why "top" would not display the process using most

Could it be that it is being blocked by whatever is using all the resources,
such that it never actually sees the culprit in the list? Stuff happening in
the kernel never shows up in top or Ksystemguard.

A failing drive sometimes acts like a super busy system, but doesn't show up in

Maybe it's Time to run some S.M.A.R.T. commands against the disk, and if it has
