LTspice - What is the best way for having Rds(on) curve of a MOSFET?

I am trying to get the Rds(on) of a MOSFET. I have tried different methods and I do not know what is the best method. There might be a method that is better than the ones I used. In practice, it seems ...

P-MOSFET Rdson values with Vgs near maximum

My understanding is that a MOSFET's Rdson generally decreases with higher absolute Vgs values within its specified range, and I typically consult datasheet curves showing Rdson vs Id and Vgs. I'm ...
