I get only 529 error response from API

I have been using the "official" SSLLabs API client called ssllabs-scan (from GitHub - ssllabs/ssllabs-scan: A command-line reference-implementation client for SSL Labs APIs, designed for automated … ) for the last 3 years in order to automate the checking of our ~110 TLS sites.  I generate a report out of this with my own tool (GitHub - keltia/erc-checktls: Parse the JSON result of ssllabs-scan and do various things/summaries )


While I could get the 529 error code (server is overloaded), since yesterday I get *only* 529 codes and the number of answers I finally get is getting lower and lower.  Here are the 4 runs I did and as you can see, I get less and less results.
