That sounds like a contradiction.
Perhaps you mean that 7 of the 8 cores are idle? That is to be expected. MySQL does not use more than one core for one connection.

SHOW CREATE TABLE -- that would give us some more clues.

How is the I/O? If one CPU is at 100%, then I would expect the I/O to be very low.

That would have killed the ALTER, and you would need to start it over.

Unfortunately, live adding of an index is not yet available. It is possibly coming in future versions of InnoDB. (MyISAM is less likely.)
