'Parent' benchmark

Can someone explain to me how should I use the 'parent' benchmark field?
We have an issue where a single benchmark provides multiple results (for example, bandwidth, cpu usage of module A during the test, cpu usage of module B during the test). For that reason, we use each as a different benchmark:
test-X-bandwidth (units: Mbps), test-X-CPU-moduleA (units: percentage), test-X-CPU-moduleB (units: percentage).
I've tried to group the two 'CPU' related benchmarks under the bandwidth one - but did not see anything coming out from this.
Is this the right way to go?

Thanks in advance,

Hi Yahniv,

currently the parent field is not really being used in the UI. It
allows to already structure your data in that way:
Benchmark X (parent)

but the UI will currently display that as 4 different benches and graphs.

Do you have an idea how you would like to represent a hierarchy in the
user interface?
We could that as a basis (documenting it in an issue) for an
implementation going forward

The below sounds good to me. 
Ideally, I would like to break tests into many 'parents' ('multiple inheritance' ?). In my case, I'd like to see bandwidth across multiple tests, or multiple tests across a single module, etc. Some can be achieved today using the comparison page.
Note that in many cases, the 'parent' is not a real benchmark - I just wanted to use it as a place-holder.

Thanks for the insights.
I created a new issue @ https://github.com/tobami/codespeed/issues/143
