My comment seems to have never made it through. The problem with what your are doing is two-fold: 1. When running the test suite specifically to test xGC for whatever x you are now forcing a test run for Shenandoah. 2. When x is Shenandoah then you run this test twice. You don't need a config just to run this with Shenandoah - you run the test suite with Shenandoah. ------------- PR: https://git.openjdk.java.net/jdk/pull/8691
