By studying the API Monitor you can see how fast your API calls are and if they are bottlenecking - they will have very slow average durations (much bigger than the minimum durations - which could be regarded as showing the best possible speed achievable through your internet connection when it is not congested). When API calls are bottlenecking, they will also probably show a value constantly exceeding 1 (i.e. in the range 2 to 5) in the concurrency column. So you could decide to choose bigger numbers in the API refresh tab to have less frequent refresh intervals and hopefully see better performance in the API Monitor, because of less pressure being put upon your internet connection.
You can adjust your API refresh settings in order to optimize your connection to Betfair and get even better roundtrip durations in the API Monitor.
