Interface Descriptions

I would like to write a script which updates some settings in interface_traffic based on the interface description of each interface. I was hoping there would be a probe callback I could use to return all of the interfaces and their descriptions but I have not found a way to do that. I know the descriptions are stored in the config file, but I'm guessing those values are static. I need a method which will always return the current description, even if it has changed since the device was added to the probe. 


Does anyone know of a way to get this information through probe callbacks or any other means? Or is there a way to force the probe to requery the descriptions and update the config file so I can parse that?
