According to this, disk queue length is the number of hard disk requests stacked up.
I have a laptop with a SSD drive. The disk queue length consistently gets up over 10.00 when doing things like loading programs. (Outlook, firefox, etc). Other computers have an average of a hundredth -- 0.01 that sometimes goes to 0.10. This is with a traditional hard disk.
What is the symptom of this? Everything seems to tell me that the SSD is in good health and these things don't fragment (per my understanding).
So, what might this be or how can I solve this? Said computer is just a pain to use... Is this simply a bad or failing SSD drive?
