I am trying to add column into MySQL table
Table size 150GB
Table storage engine= innodb
Table have already created primary key(cluster index).
More than 2 hours completed and tmp directory taken 207 GB space for this operation and still not completed
I tried algorithm =inplace and lock=none then I got syntax error and I was trying to type correct syntax but no luck so I decided to do only write add column query .
My question is why MySQL uses more than 150GB tmp size and still consuming size and not completed yet. I have no idea when it will complete . I checked .sql file size which is created while add column query running The size 1.1TB how?
Table have 4 indexes and aut_increment already on table
Please help me…

Would you like to show us
SHOW CREATE TABLE; there may be some improvements that would decrease the problem.
