comment Linux RHEL-W 6.1 laptop slows suddenly with fan running hard
Tom, how about you throw your comments out there as an answer? My box is running fine after some canned air.

I've heard recently that vacuuming can lead to ESD issues. I'll give the canned air a shot to see if it helps. Thanks!

So Tom, you think it could be hardware slowing the clock to counter overheating?

I haven't tried dstat, but I could install it and try it. What should I look for, that is, what will it show that iostat and top don't?

Top doesn't show any processes consuming the CPU. If I run my build, that shows, of course, but there's still plenty of idle - 40-60% or more.

True enough, but you can 2>/dev/null, and the end state is very much the same as if it had worked.
