I don't know whether what you want is possible "during processing", but before issuing a command, you can change the terminal's preferences via Edit > Preferences as seen in the image below.

Scrolling in Xubuntu's terminal

Most probably, just increasing the Scrollback value from the default should suffice. Going overboard may be an issue if you have limited RAM.

In case, you need a keyboard "toggle" to start and stop scrolling during a process running in the terminal, I'm not sure one exists at least in Xubuntu 18.04.
