Builds are failing intermittently in Bamboo with code 128

Our organization has a bamboo server setup in Amazon EC2 environment and we are getting the below "HTTP request failed" error intermittently. Below is the screen shot of the error log

Any help on this would be really appreciated.

The intermittent issue you are seeing might have been caused by network issues when git took long time to checkout the source code. Usually happens when network is crappy or the repo you are trying to clone is really big one. 

Possible solutions you should try:

1> Better to use ssh than https to checkout the source code from git.

     For more details on using ssh with git checkout : https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/BAMBOO/Git

2> Use shallow clones in checkout source task, ( if you don't need the tags it better to use shallow clones they are faster)

Use shallow clones

Allows Bamboo to perform shallow clones (i.e. history truncated to a specified number of revisions). This should increase the speed of the initial code checkouts, however if your build depends on the full repository history, we recommend that you do not use this option. Shallow clones are enabled by default.

3> set up linked source repositories
