Hi Sudarshan,

It will vary depending on which version of DB2 you're running, but you'll have to extract that information from the logs.  I'm unaware of a command to do so, but the db2ReadLog API can be called from a user-written program to scan the log file(s).

The committed transactions are in the transaction logs.  Unfortunately these are binary and require a tool to read them.  DB Recovery Expert is one such tool.  A second approach is to build your own tool using the DB2 api.  I've never tried this, but here is an article that talks about that approach.  http://it.toolbox.com/blogs/db2admin/reading-transaction-logs-26229
here are some articles from IBM
