Question about -XX:+PrintTenuringDistribution and age not being printed.

Thanks for the quick response today.
To finish up,using Parallel old with UseAdaptivePolicy is true by
default and I -XX:MaxTenuringThreshold=3 I expected an incompatible
I did not get it. The logs show the tenuring threshold adjusted
below and above the value of 5 e.g "new threshold 7 (max 5)."
Then I decided to switch of useAdaptiveSizePolicy and see if threshold
would be stuck at 5 but no threshold logs were printed.
My question: Does -XX:MaxTenuringThreshold=3 work with
ParallelScavenge? (Seems not).
Looks like my override is to fix size the survivor spaces through use
of some other flags? This will also turn off adaptivesizepolicy as it
is not needed.
