How often are academics expected to publish?

I realize that the discipline and the quality/type of publication are major factors. But I'm guessing that publishing in a peer-reviewed journal annually would be expected of most academics, two such publications annually would not be unusual, three would be considered prolific. In addition, a book every 5 years? conference presentation/paper once or twice a year? Just looking for some very broad estimates.
