Depending upon how long the refresh actually takes, using the ON COMMIT refresh option can increase the time required to complete the insert/update/delete transactions to the defining tables, which may be an unacceptable option especially if this is an OLTP system. Granted a 30-second refresh schedule is (in my mind) ridiculous, but using ON COMMIT may slow down transactions to an unacceptable level.

Of course we know nothing of this system outside of the 30-second refresh schedule for a materialized view for which we have no definition.
