I think you are looking for
and related functions

comint-scroll-show-maximum-output's value is t

*Controls how to scroll due to interpreter output.
This variable applies when point is at the end of the buffer
(either because it was originally there, or because
`comint-move-point-for-output' said to move it there)
and output from the subprocess is inserted.

Non-nil means scroll so that the window is full of text
and point is on the last line.  A value of nil
means don't do anything special--scroll normally.

See also the variable `comint-move-point-for-output' and the function
This variable is buffer-local in all Comint buffers.

You can customize this variable.

Defined in `comint'.

I recommend that you do not redefine standard functions and keys.
Much better would be to define new names and key mappings and base
your new functions on the definition of the standard functions.
Redefinitions will trip you up in a year or so and make it very
hard for anyone else to help you.
