Dynamic map layer fails to refresh properly

I created a dynamic map service which I need to update asap. Currently it is refreshing every 30secs and the process appears to work except that the layer always disappears for like 20 secs then refreshes again and the latest data is there. I set the refresh interval to be .5

Has anyone else ever experienced this? The service is just a bunch of points from a feature class. Even when showing like 50pts it still just refreshes once then the layer disappears, then 20secs later it comes back with the latest data.

Also, is there a better way to refresh data every 30secs than reading a cvs file, converting it to a shape file, then importing it to a feature class? This takes like 20secs to run.

Can you just read a cvs file or a table and when a new record comes in it adds it to the feature class. Essentially I just want to see these live events happen. Whether it's one at a time or five. Currently it only shows everything within the last thirty secs.

Thanks in advance!
