OBR 10.22 Network Inteface Heath Content Pack - Interface Type is erroneously used as the IF Name

Hi, is anyone aware of a hotfix, perferrably a patch, that resolves the issue of the OBR 10.22 Network Interface Health content pack using Interface Type as the Interface Name?  This resulting in an unusable chart that shows lots of interfaces all with the same name of something like "ethernetCsmad".

When running a report, if an Interface does not have a label of ifName (Interface Name) in the data supplied by NNM, then this content pack is erroneously mapping in ifType (Interface Type) instead of ifDesc, ifAlias, or IfIndex as the label name for Interface Name. 

A hotfix would be a simple series of daily SQLs that would update the Interface Health CP Rate, Hourly, and Daily fact tables in OBR that:

If Interface Name = Interface Type,

     Then Set interface Name = Interface Description if not NULL

         Or Set Interface Name = Interface Alias if not NULL

      Else Set Interface Name = Interface Index

 A patch would fix this issue at the source.

I am hoping that this has been reported, though I am finding that to be the case, and this issue has been resolved.

Thank you.
