just found this info if it could be helpful


TYPE 1 & TYPE 2 are specified when an index is created on the table.

TYPE 2 index is the option which comes with DB2V4. With TYPE 2 index data can be retreived faster as only the data pages are locked and not the index pages. Hence TYPE 2 index is recommended.
