    I would like to know the difference in course structure of Db2 V9 and DB2 V10.1.
    What sort of items/techniques/concepts/objects added or deleted?

      Well, it depends on if you’re talking about 9.1, 9.5, or 9.7, and if you’re using any special features like partitioning.
      Generally speaking, the high points are:
      from 9.1 to 9.5 and above architecture on linux/unix systems changed from multiple processes to multiple threads for a significant performance improvement.
      from 9.5 to 9.7 and above – new monitoring methodology with mon_get functions
      from 9.5 to 9.7 and above – db2haicu and easier integration of TSAMP for automating HADR failover
      Every one of these releases has improvements in the data available in system views and mon_get/monreport functions
      10.5 introduced BLU and additional compression methodolgy – good for data warehouses/decision support systems.
      10.1 introduced multiple standbys for HADR
      Performance improvements across the board in many versions – particularly in 10.1
      9.1 out of service – no additional updates, even for security
      9.5 goes out of service on April 30, 2015

      Those are the big ones that stick out. There are more things – I can’t list them all.
