Problem in max assessment calculation?

I tried launching new assessments on 3 servers this morning, using the ssllabs-scan tool, but the request are rejected with a 429 (Too many requests) error even though I'm far from the maximum assessment limit (3 out of 25). Is there a problem with the max assessment calculation today? (it worked fine yesterday).

So I get :

  • Server set maximum assessments to 25
  • Server set current assessments to 1, then 2, then 3
  • Response #4 status: HTTP/1.1 429 Too Many Requests
