Thanks for the response.
1)How do I use the Gz compression and does it come with Hadoop. Or else how do I build a compression
method for using in Hive. I would like to run evaluation across compression methods.
What is the default compression used in Hadoop.

2)Kindly bear with me if this question is stupid. I am not talking about
 compression within intermediate steps. Storing the raw data in 
compressed format, how can this be useful since data needs to be decompressed for executing
a job...wright?.
