MPS issue job001149

TitleMPS does not provide sufficient information about addresses
Assigned userRichard Brooksby
DescriptionConfigura would like to be able to ask more questions about addresses, such as:
1. is this a pointer to the base of an object?
2. is this a pointer to the middle of an object?
3. is this a pointer to a broken heart?
and possibly a number of other similar questions. The MPS can usually answer these questions (though not always quickly).

  - job002209: "MPS client cannot determine pool or format, given object address"
AnalysisWe should determine exactly the list of questions; and determine what speed is required.
We should design an extensible interface for asking such questions.
We should implement the questions required by Configura at least in the pools that Configura uses.

Also want MPS function to find base from interior pointer. RHSK 2005-03-10
