(parted) help mkpart
mkpart PART-TYPE [FS-TYPE] START END make a partition
PART-TYPE is one of: primary, logical, extended
FS-TYPE is one of: udf, btrfs, nilfs2, ext4, ext3, ext2, fat32, fat16, hfsx, hfs+, hfs, jfs, swsusp,
linux-swap(v1), linux-swap(v0), ntfs, reiserfs, hp-ufs, sun-ufs, xfs, apfs2, apfs1, asfs, amufs5,

START and END are disk locations, such as 4GB or 10%. Negative values count from the end of the
disk. For example, -1s specifies exactly the last sector.
'mkpart' makes a partition without creating a new file system on the partition. FS-TYPE may be
specified to set an appropriate partition ID.
Setting filesystem type (`FS-TYPE`) will not create an ext4 filesystem on /dev/vdc1. You still have to create the ext4 filesystem with `mkfs.ext4`.
A DOS partition table's partition types are primary, logical, and extended.
Providing a partition name under GPT is a must. In a GPT partition table, the partition type is used as the partition name.
