Clicking on the Resubmit button in Google Sitemap

Does resubmitting Google Sitemap do any harm or good?

Has anyone tried to click on the resubmit Google sitemap button for an existing sitemap file?
What are the side effects if any? The idea is to inform googlebot to visit my site links again.

I always do it when add a new page to my site. It does no harm.

As far as I understand the resubmit button is to inform Google that your site map has changed and need to be revisited. So why should it do any harm?

Thanks for your answer.
The reason is my site was crawled by Mozilla Gbot heavily for the past 2 weeks and the pages are still not shown in the G serps.. Previously it has around 70k and now it only shows about 100 pages only. I guess I have to wait then.
