I think it's also worth mentioning this may be an attack on your

have one HS work fine but many cause timeouts as you  begin to enable
all HS. As you begin to increase traffic to guards you give away that
your services are online. Depending on on your service provider's
capability they may not  even notice without going to a senior level.
This would imply your  service is the target rather than any
particular HS--or perhaps, as you noted, because  of some offending
HS. I  suppose you could create a large number of test HS to simulate
a  load.

From what you describe there's no evidence of an attack on  the sites
themselves. But when you allow them all your service goes down
completely. Why would your guards timeout without actual traffic. You
already tried changing the guards and got the same result--timeouts.

Hi, during the previous weeks we were hosting much more hidden services.
Recently we deleted a lot of unused ones, so we don't think that's the problem.

Any other hints ?
