The performance of the ATLAS Forward Proton (AFP) Silicon Tracker detector is studied using the dedicated low-luminosity ATLAS LHC data collected in the 2017 running period of LHC Run~2. A brief description of the AFP spectrometer is given, followed by the discussion of unique opportunities of diffractive physics studies in low pile-up conditions. Additionally, some features of 2017 data are explored, including trigger efficiency and creation of particle showers within the detectors.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
