OpenJdk interpreter

I am trying to modify the hotspot interpreter to collect some profile data.
The main thing I want to do is build a call-tree. I want to add a hook to
the interpreter whenever an invoke_* bytecode operation is about to execute
such that my call-tree gets updated. Can you please guide me to the part of
the code where  control is passed from the interpreter to the assembly code
corresponding to a bytecode operation. All I can find is parts where the
assembly code get generated, but I can't figure out where it is executed.
