Pressure is calculated locally.  When an activity exceeds its share
and must yield some memory (as other activities want their share), its
pressure is increased (and A.pressure logically decreases).  If
A.allocated < A.share, then A.pressure is 1.

A principal's share is dynamic.  First, principals enter and exit the
system and this can affect an activity's share.  Second, a
high-priority activity, by allocating memory, can decrease the share
of a low-priority activity.
