Record Management

  • Edward Sciore
Part of the Data-Centric Systems and Applications book series (DCSA)


The transaction manager is able to read and write values at specified locations on a disk block. However, it has no idea what values are in a block nor where those values might be located. This responsibility belongs to the record manager. It organizes a file into a collection of records and has methods for iterating through the records and placing values in them. This chapter studies the functionality provided by the record manager and the techniques used to implement that functionality.
