If all your workers are threads on the same computer then you might be able to solve the problem by making the class instance and all the memory allocated by it in shared memory, e.g. by using the approach described here: http://www.boost.org/doc/libs/1_51_0/doc/html/interprocess/sharedmemorybetweenprocesses.html
If the workers are on different computers, then, as Steve points out, this won't work.
