Fetching from Parent slower than direct ??

Hi Guys,

I wonder if it is my configuration, but I have the following Situation.

I am running 3 squid version 1.11 proxy servers on pretty fast machines (2
x Pentum 133) or faster with memory ranging from 192Mb to 256Mb. connected
to a 512k backbone which is NOT congested.

I let them be siblings of eachother, and I have also 2 parents running
Harvest on DEC Alpha superfast machines...
 So basically each of my servers has 2 siblings and 2 parents.

Now the following phenomenon occurs:

If I request with my browsers directly from the parents (my Upstream ISP) I
get a fast response, like you might expect from a fast proxy server.

If I request with my browsers from my proxy servers, it takes forever for
them to get back with a result, and even then some pictures are missing...
I use the standard ports, 8080 3130 in my squid.conf file

However, If I remove the parents from my squid.conf, it again goes at least
as fast as directly from my parents, the only problem here is that I have
to fetch the info from my parents as they have a blocking list which I also
have to oblige by.

I had this same problem before with squid parents, but never found the

Has anyone had the same problem and if yes, what would be the solution?

Any help very much appreciated.

Warmest Regards
