/usr/bin/expect : Script to check server load using both expect and bash

Hello...I am trying to make a script that can be used to check server load on a remote server and produces sound on our local machine, when server load exceeds a particular limit.
1. I want to execute command uptime or uptime | awk '{print$10}'on the remote server and store the result in a variable(say x), and later use it in the bash script.

Bash Part
echo $x

/root/Desktop/exp is my expect script
Expect part

spawn ssh
expect "*?assword:*\r"
send "redhat\r"
expect "%"
send "uptime\r"
expect "%"
send "logout"
expect "%"
I thought that echo $x will echo "uptime output in the remote server". But it does not happen.....Please help....Thanks in advance....soji
