Try using atop, I use it to monitor build processes. It's not in the

Anyway, I don't see why "top" would not display the process using most
of the cpu, though, even if used as user. Unless not sorting by default
by cpu power.

I have several sata cables and one that actually works in my present box. Two identical sata drives, used for swap at one time, developed unfixable bad sectors. I had to use hdparm to recover them. The disks continually give ata reset messages in "sudo journalctl -f" tailed log and slow the system down noticably. I created a swap file for now and my system is fine until I trigger a memory swap to disk. Go and buy a new sata cable and "smartctl -t long /sd?"" if it completes without error you can rule out disk hardware 90% of the time.
