= [[MapOutputTrackerWorker]] MapOutputTrackerWorker

MapOutputTrackerWorker is the[MapOutputTracker] for executors.

MapOutputTrackerWorker uses Java's thread-safe[java.util.concurrent.ConcurrentHashMap] for[mapStatuses internal cache] and any lookup cache miss triggers a fetch from the driver's[MapOutputTrackerMaster].

== [[getStatuses]] Finding Shuffle Map Outputs

[source, scala]

getStatuses( shuffleId: Int): Array[MapStatus]

getStatuses finds[MapStatuses] for the input shuffleId in the <> internal cache and, when not available, fetches them from a remote[MapOutputTrackerMaster] (using RPC).

Internally, getStatuses first queries the <mapStatuses internal cache>> and returns the map outputs if found.

If not found (in the mapStatuses internal cache), you should see the following INFO message in the logs:

Don't have map outputs for shuffle [id], fetching them

If some other process fetches the map outputs for the shuffleId (as recorded in fetching internal registry), getStatuses waits until it is done.

When no other process fetches the map outputs, getStatuses registers the input shuffleId in fetching internal registry (of shuffle map outputs being fetched).

You should see the following INFO message in the logs:

Doing the fetch; tracker endpoint = [trackerEndpoint]

getStatuses sends a GetMapOutputStatuses RPC remote message for the input shuffleId to the trackerEndpoint expecting a Array[Byte].

NOTE: getStatuses requests shuffle map outputs remotely within a timeout and with retries. Refer to[RpcEndpointRef].

getStatuses <> and records the result in the <mapStatuses internal cache>>.

You should see the following INFO message in the logs:

Got the output locations

getStatuses removes the input shuffleId from fetching internal registry.

You should see the following DEBUG message in the logs:

Fetching map output statuses for shuffle [id] took [time] ms

If getStatuses could not find the map output locations for the input shuffleId (locally and remotely), you should see the following ERROR message in the logs and throws a MetadataFetchFailedException.

Missing all output locations for shuffle [id]

NOTE: getStatuses is used when MapOutputTracker <> and <ShuffleDependency>>.
