If you mean CompiledMethodLoad event, you may not see it since when JVMTI is 
enabled on command line (-agentlib, -agentpath or -xrun options are 
specified) then by defaul VM currently enables interpreter mode. It is made 
because JVMTI is not implemented to any usable extent in VM in JIT mode yet. 
But in interpreter mode it is already usable for simple debugging.

So if you want to see CompiledMethodLoad event you need to explicitly specify 
-Dvm.use_interpreter=false on the VM command line. This will allow you to 
receive some JIT/interpreter independent events like ClassLoad or 
ClassPrepare and several profiling related events like CompiledMethodLoad or 
DynamicCodeGenerated. If that doesn't work, let me know. It should :)
