The variable scroll-conservatively can be adjusted for this purpose.

What value do you set it to. Default is 0 and there is no mention in the variable description help, what values it can be set to.

Is it so complicated to lookup the meaning of this variable?

        scroll-conservatively is a variable defined in `C source code'.
        Its value is 0
        *Scroll up to this many lines, to bring point back on screen.
        A value of zero means to scroll the text to center point vertically
        in the window.
        You can customize this variable.

Reading this explanation again I am not sure, whether this variable really can do what you want ... It seems to play a role when some shell output moved the point below the end of the buffer. Your description was that the buffer contents was scrolled up when you came close to the end of the buffer. So I think scroll-up- aggressively (and scroll-down-aggressively) are the proper variables. (C-h v <name of the variable> RET will produce what I don't want to copy and paste.)
