Splunk website monitoring timeout

I am getting the below error when trying to add new url for website monitoring app.

Encountered the following error while trying to save: Splunkd daemon is not responding: ("Error connecting to /servicesNS/adaher/IS_OPS/data/inputs/web_ping: ('The read operation timed out',)",)

Also, it fails with the below when trying via Splunk REST API

Argument validation for scheme=web_ping: script running failed (killed by signal 9: Killed).\n

Any idea?

You are trying to add a new website input on the web_monitoring app using the Splunk Web GUI correct?

yes but tried both from UI and REST API.
The second error appears when trying via Splunk rest API.

Something is keeping your splunkd busy while you are trying to add this input. May need to increase splunkdConnectionTimeout which defaults to 30 seconds.

I recommend reviewing your splunkd.log on that instance and if you still l cannot find the issue update $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/system/local/web.conf and increase the value of splunkdConnectionTimeout to around a minute or two.

splunkdConnectionTimeout = (default 30 secs)
