What Cisco SNMP traps do you collect?

I'm looking for some best practices when it comes to SNMP traps.  Some of our devices are all over the place and don't seem to follow any standard.

I've seen in other places that people recommend to simply turn on "snmp-server enable traps" to send everything, but maybe that's too much? Do we need to log all traps, or are there more specific ones that you find to be incredibly useful?

Thanks for any advice!
