How can I manually trigger generation of the Web Analytics Report for Traffic and Search in SharePoint 2010? It seems to run once a day.

This report is generated by a timer job that can be run manually. Try these steps:

  1. Go to Central Administration.
  2. Click on Monitoring, then Review Job Definitions.
  3. Find and click on Microsoft SharePoint Foundation Usage Data Processing.
  4. Click Run Now.

Please note that the reason it runs once a day is because of the additional load placed on the server. Run this job outside of normal working hours if possible.
