1. checklevel    (numeric, optional, default=3, range=0-4) How thorough the block verification is:
                 - level 0 reads the blocks from disk
                 - level 1 verifies block validity
                 - level 2 verifies undo data
                 - level 3 checks disconnection of tip blocks
                 - level 4 tries to reconnect the blocks
                 - each level includes the checks of the previous levels
2. nblocks       (numeric, optional, default=6, 0=all) The number of blocks to check.


true|false    (boolean) Verification finished successfully. If false, check debug.log for reason.
