The stats will start to get a bit murky without full details, and
a lot of digging. However, as a basic answer to your query (and
yes, this really is getting off-topic now, so no more posts from
me after this...)

Of the auth requests we sent off-site to the proxy during May,

  15283 were rejected
  20946 were accepted

and then of course another ~15,000 or so, above, mostly weren't
actually sent upstream (there will be some overlap, hence
statistical murkiness). This doesn't count any local users who
authenticated (or not) here without proxying.

So there were in the region of 50,000 requests that would have
gone to the proxy (intentially or otherwise), we filtered out a
load, around 35,000 did get sent, and only 20,000 were granted

That's not a great number per day for just one site, but there are
a lot more sites than just us.
