Unlike Windows, linux doesn't usually need to be rebooted for anything other than a kernel upgrade.

top, free, ps -aux... and so many others can show you resources. but as MartBrooks stated, you don't really need to reboot linux unless it requires it. like a kernel upgrade or major hardware change. or if it actually crashes too....
But I wouldn't ever reboot just due to the resources being used, that isn't even the case at times even with Windows..
