SNMP collection failing for "interface label is null or blank"

Seeking a work-around for a datacollection bug (HZN-1356 - SNMP collection failing for “interface label is null or blank”) is there a workaround? - I’m trying to wrangle some pretty old equipment with a few nulls…

This was reported in 22.01 and still there in 24.0, so hopefully there is a way forward in the interim. Any clues?
