Getting Data In

Unable to import Windows Event logs

Hi, I'm new to Splunk and was unable to find an answer to this exact question so sorry if it has been asked before or if it's a simple question but I'm  unable to import all of my local windows event logs into Splunk Enterprise.  I'm able to get around 60% of them imported but anymore then that I receive an error stating "Encountered the following error while trying to update: Splunkd Daemon is not responding:('Error connecting to /servicesNS/nobody/launcher/data/inputs/win-event-log-collections/localhost: The read operation timed out',)" . I'm sure the problem is most likely the service timing out because there are so many log channels I'm trying to import but I'm not sure how to increase the timeout timer or if there is a way to create multiple localhost inputs.  Any help you can provide would be appreciated.

Still haven't figured this one out yet.  Anyone have an idea what can be done?  Thanks!
