Estimate how much longer a MySQL ALTER will take

#!/usr/bin/env python

import os
import sys
import glob
import time
import argparse

"""
Track the progress of an ALTER.

This script will evaluate the current size of the table against the progress of
    the #sql-xxxxxx.ibd temporary file MySQL is writing out.

It will also track the rate at which the new table is being written to disk,
    and will use that average rate to determine how long is left.

Since the source and destination tables will not be exactly the same size, this
    is just an estimate.
