Must I restart the indexer after I upgrade the MMDB file (used by iplocation)

From here I know that there are two ways to update the MMDB, which is used by iplocation.

My MMDB file is updated monthly. My question is: do I need to restart my indexer after the file upgrade? Or is there a better way?

No, that should not be necessary. The only thing that would need to be restarted are real-time searches, if you are running any (hopefully not).
