What does Checksum mismatch error mean during svn to BitBucket migration?

We have a big subversion repo and it is structured as trunk and revision branches. The branches are created from the trunk always. This repo is around 38GB.

We want to migrate this repo into git.

I have tried migrating smaller repos in this structure using svn2git and svn git clone and it worked well.

It works even when I do individual branches.

However, If I migrate a few branches along with the trunk it fails with both the above tools and gives a checksum error.

What does this checksum mean?

I have also tried migrating the complete repo at once but it is taking ages and not sure when it might complete or fail. This is going really slow.

Using below command

>svn2git file:///var/dump/repo/ 
         --authors ../authors-transform.txt 
         --trunk /eng/xxx/trunk 
         --branches /eng/xxx/branches/Branchx 
         --branches /eng/xxx/branches/Branchy
