I'm giving it a try with:

JAVA_OPTIONS=" -XX:-TieredCompilation -XX:CICompilerCount=16 -XX:+ShowMessageBoxOnError" JAVA_HOME=~/hs/build/linux-x86_64-server-fastdebug/jdk/ time ./ctw.sh modules:java.base

I see it creates a 16 thread pool. Still my system seems to be lightly
loaded. Does it proceed with parallel compilations in that case?

BTW, command above causes the JVM to crash after a while.
