events in oracle DB

When i was very new to database, i always used to wonder why are there so many events in database and what is the use of all these..:-)..but now i really understand why are they there. In fact most of the times , when you feel like checking health of the database, just check out the event at that point of time and also at peak load.
The view v$session is a great place to start, the column event gives you event being faced by a particular session. This has helped me a lot..:-)
