destination local7 {
   file("/var/log/syslog-ng/$SOURCEIP/local7.log"
         sync(0) log_fifo_size(10) create_dirs(yes)
         owner(root) group(system) perm(0660) dir_perm(0770));
};

here's the list of macros you can use:

                { "FACILITY", M_FACILITY },
                { "PRIORITY", M_LEVEL },
                { "LEVEL", M_LEVEL },
                { "TAG", M_TAG },

                { "DATE", M_DATE },
                { "FULLDATE", M_FULLDATE },
                { "ISODATE", M_ISODATE },
                { "YEAR", M_YEAR },
                { "MONTH", M_MONTH },
                { "DAY", M_DAY },
                { "HOUR", M_HOUR },
                { "MIN", M_MIN },
                { "SEC", M_SEC },
                { "WEEKDAY", M_WEEKDAY },
                { "UNIXTIME", M_UNIXTIME },

                { "R_DATE", M_DATE_RECVD },
                { "R_FULLDATE", M_FULLDATE_RECVD },
                { "R_ISODATE", M_ISODATE_RECVD },
                { "R_YEAR", M_YEAR_RECVD },
                { "R_MONTH", M_MONTH_RECVD },
                { "R_DAY", M_DAY_RECVD },
                { "R_HOUR", M_HOUR_RECVD },
                { "R_MIN", M_MIN_RECVD },
                { "R_SEC", M_SEC_RECVD },
                { "R_WEEKDAY", M_WEEKDAY_RECVD },
                { "R_UNIXTIME", M_UNIXTIME_RECVD },
 
                { "S_DATE", M_DATE_STAMP },
                { "S_FULLDATE", M_FULLDATE_STAMP },
                { "S_ISODATE", M_ISODATE_STAMP },
                { "S_YEAR", M_YEAR_STAMP },
                { "S_MONTH", M_MONTH_STAMP },
                { "S_DAY", M_DAY_STAMP },
                { "S_HOUR", M_HOUR_STAMP },
                { "S_MIN", M_MIN_STAMP },
                { "S_SEC", M_SEC_STAMP },
                { "S_WEEKDAY", M_WEEKDAY_STAMP },
                { "S_UNIXTIME", M_UNIXTIME_STAMP },
                
                { "HOST_FROM", M_HOST_FROM },
                { "FULLHOST_FROM", M_FULLHOST_FROM },
                { "HOST", M_HOST },
                { "FULLHOST", M_FULLHOST },

                { "PROGRAM", M_PROGRAM },
                { "MSG", M_MESSAGE },
                { "MESSAGE", M_MESSAGE },
                { "SOURCEIP", M_SOURCE_IP }

you might also use HOST_FROM or FULLHOST_FROM if you want hostnames instead
of IPs (though it requires use_dns(yes))
