How to trace the hotspot bytecode interpreter

I know the byte interpreter implementation is mainly in
bytecodeInterpreter.cpp, but it doesn't allow me set break point in this
file. I wanna trace the bytecode interpreter. Where can I put break pointer?
Where is the entrance to bytecodeInterpreter.cpp, that is, in Hotpot, which
classes will call the methods in bytecodeInterpreter.cpp?
