Hi:

I don't know about the warnings,
but the primary error is this:

Expanding dbd
msi -I .. -I /home/liushu/epicsinstall/base3.13.8/base/dbd
../vxStatsInclude.dbd > vxStats.dbd
/bin/sh: line 1: msi: command not found

This means you need to install the macro expansion tool 'msi', see http://www.aps.anl.gov/epics/extensions/msi/index.php

And in the README of the software it's said that" In your main
application's dbd file,include the DBD description:include "vxStats.dbd"".I'm
not clear that what's "main application's dbd file" and where to add the
include description.

For example, you can create your 'main' application with the 'makeBaseApp.pl' tool. Somewhat like this: mkdir my_great_apps cd my_great_apps makeBaseApp.pl -t example test makeBaseApp.pl -i -t example test make

-> Now you have a testApp and iocBoot/ioctest
startup files.

The R3.14 Application Developer's guide has good
details, maybe it's also somewhere in the R3.13
docs.

In order to _add_ vxStats to that test application,
you follow the README in vxStats, somewhat like this:
   edit my_great_apps/config/RELASE  (configure/RELEASE for R3.14)
   and add VX_STATS=...
   edit my_great_apps/testApp/src/testInclude.dbd
   to include vxStat.dbd
   edit my_great_apps/testApp/src/Makefile*
   to include the library.
   edit my_great_apps/iocBoot/ioctest/st.cmd
   to load the vxStat database
