Show throughput (records/second) between stages in DataStage in Live View

Background: Databand's integration with DataStage reports record counts of inputs and outputs as metrics once a run has completed. In order to measure the efficiency of data being transformed and moved by DataStage, it would be helpful to see the throughput of a stage in terms of the number of records per second, including while the run is still in progress.

Requested feature: Add a new metric to the Live View page for DataStage runs that will measure the throughput of read and write operations in terms of records read/written per second, and ensure that this metric updates while the run is still in progress so that it can be monitored in near real time rather than waiting for the run to complete.
