I have a feed I am reading from that takes awhile to load.

Hello. I have a feed I am reading from that takes awhile to load. The feed performs php behind the scenes, and creates approx 100 files on the server, and creates additional XML files for ever time the feed is read.

I get this error when I process the feed: " WP HTTP Error: Operation timed out after 10001 milliseconds with 0 bytes received ". I expect the feed to take awhile each time. I have the max_execution_time set to 120 already... So that's not it..?
