		 * Add or modify which site status tests are run on a site.
		 * The site health is determined by a set of tests based on best practices from
		 * both the WordPress Hosting Team, but also web standards in general.
		 * Some sites may not have the same requirements, for example the automatic update
		 * checks may be handled by a host, and are therefore disabled in core.
		 * Or maybe you want to introduce a new test, is caching enabled/disabled/stale for example.
		 * Tests may be added either as direct, or asynchronous ones. Any test that may require some time
		 * to complete should run asynchronously, to avoid extended loading periods within wp-admin.
		 * @since 5.2.0
		 * @param array $test_type {
		 *     An associative array, where the `$test_type` is either `direct` or
		 *     `async`, to declare if the test should run via Ajax calls after page load.
		 *     @type array $identifier {
		 *         `$identifier` should be a unique identifier for the test that should run.
		 *         Plugins and themes are encouraged to prefix test identifiers with their slug
		 *         to avoid any collisions between tests.
		 *         @type string $label A friendly label for your test to identify it by.
		 *         @type mixed  $test  A callable to perform a direct test, or a string Ajax action to be called
		 *                             to perform an async test.
