Socket start interval is the delay between opening one connection and opening the next. On some systems it matters because this will invoke throttling, due to viral behaviour that opens as many connections as it can, as fast as it can. (That's also the reason for limiting half-open connections at all.)

You don't generally need to change either of these from the default values, and should not without a good and specific reason to do so. Changing them won't help your speed, but it can, in certain specific situations, prevent being slowed down by systems that think you're a virus.
