prstat output

hi all,
have a ksh script where i am doing a
prstat -m -u osuser 1 1 >> $FILE_NAME

but for some reason it only writes 15 lines wheres when i run the same command manually from command prompt it prints out 60 lines.
why is it not writing the full 60 lines to the file ??

From prstat manual page:
When you specify the -c option or direct the output to a file, the default values for ntop and nbottom are 15 and 5.
Use the -n option if you want more lines.
