all the rest of file is like the original

Ok, if the rest of your setenv file has the default settings, it is possible that the default Garbage Collector may be part of the problem.  My recommendation would be to create a support zip and open a support ticket with Atlassian.  Here's the link to the Atlassian Support Landing Page.

PS Survivor Space

PS Old Gen

89% Free (Used: 460 MB Total: 4256 MB)

When it's consuming all of the memory, is the majority of it tied up in the PS Old Gen memory bank?
Will still need to see the JVM arguments and Garbage Collector configuration from the setenv file, or can you copy the JVM arguments from the System Info screen? 

Assuming you're using Standalone Server, can you provide your JVM arguments from your setenv file?  Mostly going to be interested in the Xms/Xmx and Garbage Collector settings (typically listed under JVM_EXTRA_ARGS).
