Our Services


Mindcraft takes a full-service approach to satisfying your testing needs. We work with you to define the goals you want to achieve via testing. Then, we take over the management and execution of the testing project from the test plan development to the final report. Our primary services are:

Performance Testing & Capacity Planning

Mindcraft offers both standard and custom performance testing services. Our standard service focuses on open, Internet-related protocols such as HTTP, LDAP, POP3, and IMAP4. We provide you with Certified Performance Reports that clearly explain the results of a performance test. If you are a product vendor, these reports can help support your marketing. If you are an end user, they can help you make an informed buying decision, which can save you a significant amount of money.

With our custom performance testing service, we work with you to define test goals. Then we put together the necessary tools and do the testing. We report the results back to you in a form that satisfies the test goals. If you are planning hardware or software acquisitions, use Mindcraft's custom performance testing service to help you determine the most cost-effective purchases to achieve the capacity you need.

Mindcraft does performance testing in its own test lab or in yours, depending on the requirements of the project. The test tools we use include:

  • SPECweb
  • WebStone
  • WebBench
  • WCAT
  • DirectoryMark
  • LoadSim
  • InetLoad

Application Testing

Mindcraft can test your applications for both quality and performance. We have experience testing many different types of applications including:

  • Internet/intranet applications
  • Graphical applications
  • Database applications
  • Messaging applications

We have also tested device drivers, operating systems, and compilers.

Custom Test Development

Mindcraft can use its expertise to develop test tools and test suites to meet your requirements. We have developed and integrated test tools amounting to over 3,000,000 lines of code. We typically follow an assertion-based test methodology to assure thorough test coverage of a product. However, we apply other test methodologies as appropriate.
