Oh, apologies. I this was for the stackdriver-collectd instead of collectd package. Glad I could help a little still with the service :)

Nothing should be installed into /opt. Please check if your PKGBUILD is different somehow.

I'll update the service file to use Type=notify, skipping the collectdmon thing.

Is there any reason this is installed in /opt/collectd? It appears to me that the directory structure within /opt/collectd is compatible with having it installed within /usr.

It would also make more sense to have the configuration files in /etc (instead of /opt/etc) and the PID file in /run, etc.

Lastly, I'm not really sure the service should be forking. You can add the -f flag to prevent forking which I believe systemd prefers.
