You could use the client program to get the needed information - for
the number of proxy connections it would be the following:

/path_to/squid/bin/client cache_object://localhost/stats/filedescriptors

Then have a look at the lines of type socket and descrition http, ftp,
etc. these are the proxy connections between squid and the clients
- and squid and its parents, neighbors and the www-servers if the
document couldn't be served from the cache.

 You could use a perl-script to calculate the number of
connections. The script could even open the connection to squid
itself. It's just a connection to squid's port (3128 in most cases)
and a 'GET cache_object://localhost/stats/filedescriptors HTTP/1.0' -
