You could force all traffic to go through the upstream proxies (using
either single parent bypass (essentially you have one parent) or inside
firewall). You'll find that most of the traffic going direct is cgi

If you are neighbo(u)ring, then misses will force your cache to go direct.
Parenting, however, will make your parent caches retrieve the object for

As for a cascade of parents, I've been asking for that myself :)
