This article details the reason for trap messages being displayed in hex.


All NPM versions


Normally string variables (octet string) included with a trap message are displayed/rendered as ASCII characters when processed by the Traverse Message Handler.  However, if a string contains any non-printable characters, then the string is displayed as hex encoded bytes.
