If the size of log files are increased it may become slower.
If you are using high graphics it may slower your system performance.

Well and also, if your system is not up to par with what the system requirements are then yes it will run slow. Just take things one step at a time to figure out the probable cause. The three highest possibilities and reasons for your system to be running slow are the following.

1. System hardware is on the lower end of what is required.
2. You are trying to do high graphics with a low-end graphics card.
3. You have a virus

Number is not out of the question but it is very unlikely. My guess it is probably number one. Best of luck to you.

If Linux Machine is running slow, the following checkpoints can be performed for knowing the real reason of lazziness:



top -c will be the best weapon to track which process is taking much of the memory and CPU.
