    Pls check  "dfs.datanode.scan.period.hours"

Thanks for your replies. Few seconds I was feeling unsecured ;)

Seems the default period for the DataBlockScanner is 3 weeks:
static final long DEFAULT_SCAN_PERIOD_HOURS = 21*24L;

And I have not found anyway to modify that. I will continue to search
and might drop a msg on hadoop list if I still don't find.

Still the periodic operation of block scanning at HDFS will continue. We can turn this OFF
by configuring this period with a -ve value I think.
