The summarization search is timing out before it can complete.
Decrease your time range or increase your parallel summarization threads.

To do that you would increase (or set) the value of autosummarize.maxconcurrent in savedsearches.conf
The default value is 1, so I would start by setting it to 2 then re-evaluate performance.
