Definition - What does Thrashing mean?

Thrashing in computing is an issue caused when virtual memory is in use. It occurs when the virtual memory of a computer is rapidly exchanging data for data on hard disk, to the exclusion of most application-level processing. As the main memory gets filled, additional pages need to be swapped in and out of virtual memory. The swapping causes a very high rate of hard disk access. Thrashing can continue for a long duration until the underlying issue is addressed. Thrashing can potentially result in total collapse of the hard drive of the computer.
Thrashing is also known as disk thrashing.
