It's saving about 40-55%! I'm gzipping serialized events in lumberjack 
so it's not just a guess. I think this should probably be considered for 
both network transmission and logfiles.

It's really easy/a small change so probably just try it out...
        ByteArrayInputStream bis = new ByteArrayInputStream(buffer);
        GZIPInputStream gis=new GZIPInputStream(bis);
        ObjectInputStream ois=new ObjectInputStream(gis);
