Expect buffer size increase, please help

Hi Group,
I am struggling to increase buffer size of expect,

sometimes after increasing the buffer size, expect captures all my expected output, sometimes not, :-(

I tried

match_max 700000
set expect_out(buffer) {}


Could anybody guide me for any solution.

HTH,
Jaduks
