right now the optimization is rule based as opposed to cost based e.g. mapjoin optimization
is done if the user has a /*+ MAPJOIN(a) */ hint in the query where a stands for the table
that has to be replicated in all the mappers (aka the smaller table). The other optimizations
are controlled by configuration variables in hive conf and some of them are on by default
e.g predicate pushdown, partition pruning, hash based aggregation and column pruning.
