Physical Records

These are the records that are stored in the secondary storage devices. For the database relation, physical records are the group of fields kept in adjacent memory locations and retrieved mutually as a unit. Considering the page memory system, data page is the quantity of data read or written in single I/O operation to and from secondary storage device to the memory and vice-versa. In this context we describe a term blocking factor that is explained as the number of physical records per page.
