ru_maxrss and other members are not implemented on Linux.

From the man page:

      The above struct was taken from 4.3BSD Reno.  Not all fields are meaningful under Linux.  In linux 2.4 only the
       fields  ru_utime,  ru_stime,  ru_minflt, and ru_majflt are maintained.  Since Linux 2.6, ru_nvcsw and ru_nivcsw
       are also maintained.
