Hi Vinay, has information about data collection jobs....

"After installing the Jazz™ Team Server, you must set up and run the data collection jobs on the server so that reports can be run on the data to produce meaningful report output.

Data collection jobs extract data from the registered applications and load the data into the data warehouse. The process is also known as ETL (extract, transform, and load), and data collection jobs are sometimes referred to as ETL jobs. The data that is extracted during this process is used for historical reporting, in which reports access stored data about application and cross-application metrics, trends, aggregations, and other relationships to produce meaningful report output. Before a historical report can be successfully run, data collection jobs must be completed at least once so that there is data in the data warehouse for the report to access."

That help document also includes information on how to run the jobs.
