    cellcli has spooling capabilities similar to sqlplus:
    CellCLI> help spool
    
      Usage:  SPO[OL] [<filename> [ CRE[ATE] | REP[LACE] | APP[END]] | OFF ]
    
      Purpose: SPOOL <filename>: Direct the results to the file <filename>.
               SPOOL OFF: Turn off the spooling.
               SPOOL: Check the current spooling status.
    
      Arguments:
        <filename>: The filename where the results will be output.
    
      Options:
        [APPEND]: If the filename already exists, the following output will
                  be appended to the file. Without this option, the existing file
                  contents will be replaced.
        [CREATE]: If the filename already exists, an error is reported.
        [REPLACE]: If the filename already exists, the contents will be
                  replaced.  This is the default, when no option is provided.
    
      Examples:
        spool myfile
        spool myfile append
        spool off
        spool
    But if you are trying to script it, it would be easier to just run it command line:
    # cellcli -e "list metrichistory where objectType = 'CELL' and name = 'CL_TEMP'" > /tmp/CL_TEMP.txt
    Also look into dcli which allows you to run cellcli commands on one or more cells from a compute node.

    Good luck.
