Equivalent command for "time -v" in Centos

I want to know the approximate maximum memory usage by my process. If I start the process using "time -v <myprocess>", I get the output after it terminates. This works fine in RedHat Enterprise Linux, but not in Centos. There does not seem to be an option "-v" for time. Do I miss anything ? What is the equivalent in Centos to know the peak memory usage by a process ?

       Note:  some  shells (e.g., bash(1)) have a built-in time command that provides less
       functionality than the command described here.  To access the real command, you may
       need to specify its pathname (something like /usr/bin/time).
