User Story
Skipping the transaction size check may (or may not) bring us better performance on replay.

Currently we have this code (introduced by #1586):

FC_ASSERT( head_block_time() <= HARDFORK_CORE_1573_TIME
|| trx.get_packed_size() <= chain_parameters.maximum_transaction_size,
"Transaction exceeds maximum transaction size." );

and we have similar code like this:

if( !(skip & skip_block_size_check) )
FC_ASSERT( fc::raw::pack_size(next_block) <= get_global_properties().parameters.maximum_block_size );

(I thought I've submitted this somewhere else but did not find it so far. Please close if it's duplicate.)

Note: The actual size calculation happens in parallel. So the skip logic would need to be around here too:

Thanks for assigning yourself @jmjatlanta That helps me know someone will be working it. May I also request you add it to the proper Project Board (Feature or Protocol Upgrade)? It will go into To do by default. You may move it In development when you begin.

@jmjatlanta jmjatlanta added this to To do in Feature Release (3.1.0) via automation Mar 4, 2019

@jmjatlanta jmjatlanta moved this from To do to In development in Feature Release (3.1.0) Mar 25, 2019

@jmjatlanta jmjatlanta moved this from In development to In testing in Feature Release (3.1.0) Apr 11, 2019
