What is the cause of the beating? How the system does recognized thrashing? Once it recognize thrashing, what would be the rule to terminate this issue? What is the use of Ntbootdd.sys files?

Beating and Trashing of System

When a certain computer has a very poor memory and it is being accessed every time at a very low speed, it is called Thrashing because it swaps data in and out to accommodate the file or application that you are running. RAM figures out thrashing because it is a part of the computer that holds the data you are working on at that particular moment or time. You would be able to resolve this issue by increasing your RAM or try to perform one application at a time. While, Ntbootdd.sys is a duplicate of SCSI driver that is being used to compensate SCSI driver if it has been disabled.

The “ntbootdd.sys” file is only a copy of the SCSI device driver and is located on the system partition or drive C. It is used when using the Signature syntax in the boot.ini file or SCSI. This file is a device driver file and is used only on systems that boot from a SCSI disk where the SCSI adapter BIOS is disabled.

The “ntbootdd.sys” file is used to identify and load the SCSI interface on systems with SCSI boot device. Otherwise, the file is actually not installed on systems that don’t have SCSI device because it is not needed. Additionally, if the SCSI adapter has INT 13h BIOS support, the “ntbootdd.sys” file is not required. It is also used in the Windows NT startup floppy disks.

The term “thrashing” is a kind of computer activity that makes little or no progress. This usually happens because of the memory or other resources have been exhausted. You can experience thrashing if your computer has very little amount of physical RAM left and the virtual memory usage is very high and almost nearing its maximum size.

You will know when a system is in a “thrashing” state when the computer is extremely slow almost like it’s already frozen and a single click on a button takes several seconds sometimes minutes before the computer responds and performs the action.
