How about s-operand or something equivalent in your proxy log? 

#Fields: time s-operand cs-method cs-URI
00:34:23 cs GET /foo/bar.html
00:34:24 sr GET /foo/bar.html
00:34:36 sc SND /foo/bar.html

This should give you the first three of what was mentioned above.  The
total transaction duration between the different systems is then just
simple arithmatic which can be done by the analyzer.
