Pressing 'H' in 'top' is one way; there might be others.

When Emacs becomes sluggish, does pressing and holding an arrow key
produces a slow response time for the first keypress, followed by more
or less normal response times for the next keypresses?  If so, the
culprit is probably some idle timer.  If all the keypresses get the
same slow response, then it could be a non-idle timer.

Showing a list of the timers you have might be a first step towards
digging into this possibility.
