MemSQL runs some operations that would be useful with an associated progress bar or time estimate so that one can understand roughly how long it will take.
A few examples of these operations are: REBALANCE PARTITIONS, BACKUP DATABASE, RESTORE REDUNDANCY, RESTORE DATABASE.
This would be useful for all operations that could potentially take a significant amount of time (more than seconds).
