User Story

From an open-explorer issue regarding the list of active committee_members and witnesses: oxarbitrage/open-explorer#31

Initial discussion in the core: #803 (comment) is related as adding to the count of votes in inactive objects will impact latency of maint block.

Decided to make a startup option to count this objects so api nodes will want to have this enabled while block producers probably not.

Although calculating the votes for ALL objects would be ideal, if it's too much of a performance issue, we should at least update the count for inactive ones to 0 to avoid misrepresentations like the one you encountered in open-explorer.

Another option is to add a compile-time option, like the method used in #1099

  • compile-time option will result in better performance;
  • it's good to have all similar options at the same place.

I'll work in this direction.
