[Barrelfish-users] about bulk transfer

I have a problem about bulk transfer during communication between dispatchers. As far as I know, bulk transfer is to use shared memory to implement massive data transfer. But assume in our system, like distributed system, we don't want to use shared memory method, so is it possible to turn off bulk transfer in Barrelfish? And how to do it?

By the way, is there some limitation on bulk transfer? e.g. bulk transfer can be only used by processes on the some core? or any two dispatchers, on matter on the same core or different cores, can set up bulk transfer?

Best regards,
