Hi, apologies for the delay.

Re 1: The problem resides in your test. Whenever you call the following code, you're traversing /user FQN and so it's the same as you were doing cache.get("/user/1"), cache.get("/user/2"), cache.get("/user/3"), cache.get("/user/4")...etc. So, 4 and 5 are always used and since this is the last call of the loop before the sleep, they're the most LRU and so data added in 3 will be evicted. So, the behaivour you're seeing is correct.

Re 2: The size is exceeded for only a brief period of time. When eviction kicks in, it's reduced back to 5. Obviously, to see this number exactly, you'd need to print the contents as soon as the eviction round finished and before you add any new data!

Re 3: Just run your test and verified that eviction gets, first time run in 5 seconds and afterwards every 10 seconds:
