As Brandon pointed out, in 10g, a complete refresh of a single MV does a delete and insert on the MV table. With indexes on, it comsumes more time and resource. They asked me to create 11 indexes. After carefully analysis, they were reduced to 6 indexes but instead of 5 minutes, it takes 15 minutes to refresh the same view now. I will have to drop indexes and recreate them after the refresh. Thanks.
