There are 10 different DoS related options in Tor manual. I am not ready to research/document that. Could be depending on the type of onion service. Popularity. Traffic. Whatnot. There may not be any one fits all solution, I speculate, because otherwise Tor Project would configure that per default (they might have sane defaults). For now only mentioning it here with a stub:

Leaving that decision to onion services operators.

Looks like Tor relay, not Tor client options?

No because he asks about his client settings in his question and dgoulet doesn’t contradict him, but says these are per HS rather than global.

How do I configure my hidden service to use the latest Dos defense
