Tracking incidents enables administrators to view and analyze the performance statistics of Microsoft Forefront Protection 2010 for SharePoint (FPSP) operations. When FPSP reports incidents, you are assured that FPSP is successfully detecting malware and employing filters.

The incidents database contains records of all malware (for example, viruses and spyware) and filter matches that FPSP has detected. The incidents database records what was caught by FPSP and provides information about how and where the incident occurred.

For more information about reducing the size of the incidents database, see "Reducing the size of the incidents database" in Managing incidents.
