Getting variables into a array.

Hi ,
Im trying to monitor 2 instancesof a process on our solaris server and trying to do a notification if the returned process size is greater than 500M.
Since there are two variables returned I want to make use of arrays to check each and every variable that is stored. the issue that im facing is that how can i assign the output of 'top | grep siebmtshmw | grep -v grep | awk '{print $6}' to a array ??
if i do something like

proc[]=top| grep siebmtshmw |awk '{print $6}'|sed 's/\%//'
echo ${proc[@]} ---Returns a wrong value

for ((i = 0 ; i < ${#proc[@]} ; i++ ))
echo ${proc[$i]}
*** i will put the logic to check if the variables are greater than 500***
echo $i
echo ******


hercule1:sadmin\>top | grep siebmtshmw | grep -v grep | awk '{print $6}'
the above command returns the below vars
I need to store what ever is returned by top | grep siebmtshmw | grep -v grep | awk '{print $6}' into variables of a array .

Any help/suggestion is appreciated.

Here is a simple example which should help you understand what is going on

bash-3.2$ ls tp*
tp  tp1 tp2 tp3 tp4
bash-3.2$fnarray=($(ls tp*))
bash-3.2$ echo ${#fnarray[*]}
bash-3.2$ echo ${fnarray[2]}

proc[]=top| grep siebmtshmw |awk '{print $6}'|sed 's/\%//'
echo ${proc[@]} -- > print the list of files in directory but not the 2 this wierd ?
