    Description

      NullPointerException is obtained in Tracker Expiry Thread. Below is the exception obtained in the JT logs

      ERROR org.apache.hadoop.mapred.JobTracker: Tracker Expiry Thread got exception: java.lang.NullPointerException
              at org.apache.hadoop.mapred.JobTracker.updateTaskTrackerStatus(JobTracker.java:2971)
              at org.apache.hadoop.mapred.JobTracker.access$300(JobTracker.java:104)
              at org.apache.hadoop.mapred.JobTracker$ExpireTrackers.run(JobTracker.java:381)
              at java.lang.Thread.run(Thread.java:619)
      

      The steps to reproduce this issue are:

      • Blacklist a TT.
      • Restart it.
      • The above exception is obtained when the first instance of TT is marked as lost.

      However the above exception does not break any functionality.
