Free, well distributed, well documented, scalible, and supports novices through gurus:  Oracle's Enterprise Manager -- Grid version especially if you want to monitor more than a single instance.  And as a side recommendation, please, please, please get the new Metalink (My Oracle Support) agents running on your nodes -- a most excellent improvement for us DBAs.  See https://metalink.oracle.com/CSP/ui/flash.html#.
OEM:  takes effort and experience to gain understanding, granted.  So does life.  I am in love with the internal dbms scheduler as an excellent replacement to the AT / cron / batch tools at an OS level.  Most any alert or event you can think of is already coded and available to be turned on.
There are gazillions of tutorials, FAQs, knowledge bases on the topic: simply search EE for "Oracle Enterprise Manager", or Metalink, or searchoracle.com --  others will jump on with fav links, I'm sure.
I've taken to TOAD since its free version one days, and my fingers are conditioned to select that icon for quick and dirty stuff, like having the boss breathing down my neck.  EM is very much worth a hard look.  IMHO, of course :D
Regards,
dvz
