I didn't understand well which events should be monitored.

> /var/log/messages IN_ACCESS /root/test $@/$#

This rule monitors only file reads. The appropriate event is sent
exactly once for each read() call (and also for other read cases, eg.
asynchronous or vector reading). If you want to monitor write events (as
done by write()) please use IN_MODIFY. You can monitor all events too -

These symbols and their meanings are currently described only in the
inotify(7) man page. It has been reported as #0000157 to be incorporated
into the incrontab(5) page. I plan to do it ASAP.
