but in order to launch with any terations count, one shold just launch 
UsageThresholdExceededTest with -Dcom.oracle.java.testlibrary.iterations 

> In UsageThresholdExceededSeveralTimesTest you have specified -Dcom.oracle.java.testlibrary.iterations=10 in the test - this will also mean that you cannot override it from outside. So same result.

And it is the “arbitrary” that I have a problem with. Iteration of what? When/if we port these old tests, should we not try to clean this up and make it less arbitrary? Or is there some design choice in the tests that I am missing?
