Software RAID: a question of light

Today, I am asking a simple question to solve a little problem I have :

Since I installed a RAID array in an OpenSUSE machine, I can observe that the little red LED light of disk access flashes once every seoncd -even when I do not try to use the array. Would somebody be able to explain me why the machine finds it necessary to regularly check at least one disk so often?
