Meaning of MINIMUM SEEK TIME

 
Computing Dictionary
 
 Definition: 

(Or track-to-track seek time) The time it takes to move the head of a disk drive from one track to the next. The minimum seek time gives a good measure of the speed of the drive in a single-user/single-process environment where successive read/write request are largely correlated and thus if correlated data is stored in nearby cylinders most seeks are from one cylinder to the next.
