If running this query  longer than 30 Seconds, reduce the number of events in the Eventlog2 table.
This can be done with an archive and trim of the Events.

*Warning: Irreparable database damage can occur. This procedure should only be performed by users familiar with SQL Server Management Studio. Databases should be backed up prior to performing this procedure.* 
  1. Open the database Manager in Management Console
  2. Login with a supervisor level user in PME
  3. Under databases, right click ION_data and select either trim or Archive. If using Archive make sure that "Remove archived data from live database" is checked
  4. Under data types, make sure only Events are selected
  5. Run the archive or trim to remove data from the EventLog2 table
Note: In later versions of PME, the Active Alarm count is based on a different table in ION_Data called Alarm log
