Question about fast path and slow path

I have some questions about jvm slow path to ask you:
1. How can we force jvm to go slow path? Is there any jvm options?
2. What's the difference between slow path and fast path?
3. During slow path, will the interpreter translate the bytecode into
assembly codes?

Thanks a lot!
