top command output in "human readable"


Okay this is a dumb question...

The top command by default displays in "k" ...how can I make it display in "M"?

"human readable" top

The man is a bit obscure but I think top -M will do what you're looking for.

Quick research: -M avail on RHEL6.x, NOT on RHEL 5.x (at least on one of each here ...)
