Remember that not all applications support their documents on shared fileservers. Adobe products specifically come to mind. MSFT Office docs are often also problematic expecting expanded access to base directories to create temp files. (The latter can be worked around but is problematic.)

AFP Server is very memory intensive, by design. It's more important to give it plenty of memory so that it can perform well than to give it more processors or cores.
