  DB2 data driver. Requires ODBC.
From phpdb list:

Hi Andrew,

thanks a lot for your help. Today we discovered what
our real problem was:

After "playing" a little bit with the php-scripts that try
to connect to the IBM DB2, we set the optional parameter
Cursortype when calling odbc_pconnect(....).

And the exciting thing: When we set the cursor type
to SQL_CUR_USE_ODBC Cursor Type, then
the whole query speed up from 1 till 10 seconds
to 0.2 till 0.3 seconds for 100 records. Amazing!!!

Therfore, PHP is just almost fast as calling the DB2
from Servlets using JDBC (don't take too much care
about the speed at whole: the database was on a
completely other location, so the whole connection
was made over a slow network connection).

I hope this helps when other encounter the same
problem when trying to connect to DB2 from

Kind regards,
Christian Szardenings

Mark Newnham has discovered that the SQL_CUR_USE_ODBC is not supported by 
IBM's DB2 ODBC driver, so this must be a 3rd party ODBC driver.

From the IBM CLI Reference:

This connection attribute is defined by ODBC, but is not supported by DB2
CLI. Any attempt to set or get this attribute will result in an SQLSTATE of
HYC00 (Driver not capable). 

A 32-bit option specifying how the Driver Manager uses the ODBC cursor

So I guess this means the message below was related to using a 3rd party
odbc driver.
