I did a couple of post on the data template and the config manager to see the basic process of exporting data from a configuration. The usage of these require the system diagnostics service which you can find a post here. There are some additional parameters that you will need to configure on the system diagnostics which you can find documented there
Set up Configuration manager (Lifecycle Services, LCS)
Here is a quick overview of these parameter to put them in context.
