Default Non Linear Distortion testing - Harmonic Distortion

What are the advantages or disadvantages of testing for distortion with a

1. Sine Sweep Signal
2. frequency sweep at one power with 2nd, 3rd, and 4th harmonics showing.
3. Power Sweep at one frequency with 2nd, 3rd, and 4th harmonics showing.

Which would be used to calculate individual harmonic distortions and which would be used to calculate THD?

I hope that my question is clear.
