WRKPTFGRP, press enter. Shows all the PTF groups and their levels.
Press F11 to see the names rather than the PTF numbers.

This explains the... variety of ways fixes can be delivered by IBM:

The Fixes web site
(http://www-947.ibm.com/systems/support/i/fixes/index.html) is the place
to start looking for specific fixes. Drilling down into the group PTF
section for 7.1, the current group level for DB2 is 30.

Some of the newer DB2 functionality is delivered in Technology
Refreshes, in between full OS releases. These are documented in a
separate place called DeveloperWorks:
