service/startpriority is a SAP Parameter attribute which is used to control Instance priority during system start/stop information. This is available within R/3 SAP systems depending on the version and release level.
Below is the standard documentation available and a few details of the attributes values .
Start priority of the instance during system start/stop. The start
service usually determines the start priority automatically using the
processes configured in an instance and can therefore start or stop an
entire system in the correct sequence. Instances with the same start
priority are started in parallel. Only once these are fully started is
the process continued with the next priority level (in the case of a
system stop, the same applies in the reverse sequence). To do this, the
priorities are lexically compared and sorted. In exceptional cases or in
the case of unknown process types that require a particular start/stop
sequence, you can manually adjust the start priority.
