Question about using TOP command

Hello everyone. We are running TOP version 3.6.1 on RH linux 5.1. We are trying to use the command top -H to get some insight into how our software software threads are performing.

For some reason we are getting the error -H is not a valid option. Our MAN pages says it is. Can anyone offer some insight?

Invoke top normally, and then once it has entered its interactive display, press H to toggle "show threads" on and off.
