I have a question on disk access.

How often is PostgreSQL accessing/touching the files that are on the hard 

What I'm trying to ask is, is PostgreSQL constantly updating access 
timestamps or something like that on the database files even if they are not 
being queried? This questions comes from an Oracle background where Oracle 
was updating the individual files every 3 seconds if I am remembering 

I am trying to figure out besides the queries, what sort of accessing is 
PostgreSQL doing to my drives so we can try and resolve some i/o issues.
