I have two tables that I periodically truncate and repopulate. I have both tables set to NOLOGGING, to speed up the refresh.  

The two truncate statements usually take about 10 seconds or less, but sometimes it takes 5 minutes or more. The repopulate takes a little over a minute.  

Has anyone seen this before, or know what might cause this behavior?
